With detailed reconstructions and original artwork from each period, find yourself immersed in the incredible action, as you confront the redcoats, catch gold fever, journey West, and ride the trails, your trusty lasso at your side.


Praise for All About America: Explorers, Trappers, and Pioneers

“These attractive volumes provide solid information. . . . Strengths consistent throughout the four books include engaging text, well-selected illustrations, a one-paragraph introduction on the contents page that summarizes the scope of the book, and translation of period costs to current dollar values. These texts cover a wide span of time and history; this scope, along with some of the surprising information in the many pull-out boxes, leaves readers wanting more. That is not necessarily a bad thing, as students can follow up with further research on the topics of interest.” —School Library Journal
