This is a very fun way to learn history for the 8 - 11 year age group. There are comical cartoons scattered among the text. Children enjoy this series. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0590118315, Paperback)

This illustrated nonfiction series is a rollicking read through the fascinating, the horrible, the absolutely awesome, and the positively wacky world of American history.

The Vikings, Columbus, Cabot, Balboa, Ponce de Leon, Cortes, Cartier, Coronado--from 1000 to the 1540s, Europeans explorers were making a mad dash to the Americas. They claimed they had "discovered" a "New World." Of course this was news to the people who'd been living in the Americas for thousands of years. People who had built palaces, bathrooms with steam baths, cities. People who had GOLD!

It was inevitable: New World and Old World collided!

Focuses on the first contacts between the European, especially the Spanish, on the Indians of the New World.
