Produced using the highest quality in design, color, illustrations, paper and bindings, this textbook tells the story of North America—the Indian nations, European colonization, and the founding and history of the United States up to the Twentieth Century. Told as a series of historically accurate stories, the textbook includes thumbnail biographies, lives of the saints, maps, illustrations, and other supplemental material. The lavish use of color photos, drawings and maps, combined with the excellent writing of highly qualified teachers, authors and editors, make this volume and history series the best available today. Featuring colorful illustrations, beautiful artwork, and attractive maps and charts, these textbooks are faithful to Lumen Gentium’s vision of history: “the work of God through the ages”. With a proper use of multiculturalism, and pride of place given to Catholic culture, many brief biographies of historically important men and women, including the saints of the time bring to life the story of world cultures and geography.
