Goes into great detail about events and background - including the politics behind it all. Easy to read and jam packed with good information. Like I said, we were surprised, very pleasantly so despite what I read from other reviewers here. You can't unwrite history - we have to accept the good and the bad about our past and I think this books presents it all fairly, without 'rewriting' and white washing.
Second of all, teaching children that dinosaurs "probably lived next to man" is a joke.
Third, it's funny that this text claims Christopher Columbus failed to actually "discover America" because he was Catholic, and "God doesn't recognize Catholics as the one true religion."
Fourth, it claims that the White Protestants were destined to have North America because they had Gods favor over the Natives. "The natives worshiped creation, while the protestants worshipped their Creator." Interesting how "Gods will" and "Destiny" play into objective history lessons. Then it goes on to claim that the Trail of Tears was great, because lots of natives got converted. Yeah, hundreds of thousands of natives got marched to their death, I don't think that equates to "finding Jesus" but hey, whatever it takes to make white people feel better about Genocide.
Fifth, "The KKK was a positive force of social reform." Oh really? I suppose if you consider hanging black people "positive".
Sixth, "The Great Depression was exaggerated propaganda by Communists like John Steinbeck." Oh yeah? My grandfather was alive then and he would tell you otherwise.
Man I could just go on and on. This is not education. This is indoctrination. You know what really tops it all off? Bob Jones' boy Robert Jones Jr. He's the Grand Wizard of North Carolina's KKK.

I needed a concise history of the US for adult ESOL students. It qualifies as concise, but some of the parts are too emotional. Read morePublished 23 months ago by Patricia
