Beschreibung

American history comes alive in these 100 true stories that define our country.

This magnificent treasury tells the story of America through 100 true tales. Some are tales of triumph-the midnight ride of Paul Revere, the Wright brothers taking to the air, Neil Armstrong's first steps on the moon. Some are tales of tragedy-the fate of the Donner Party, the great fire in Chicago, the eruption of Mount Saint Helens.

There are stories of inventors and athletes and abolitionists and artists. Stories about struggling for freedom-again and again, in so many ways.

With full-color illustrations on nearly every page and short, exciting stories, this book is perfect for browsing by the entire family. Notes at the end of each story direct readers to related stories. And a guide to thematic story arcs offers readers (and teachers) an easy way to follow their particular interests throughout the book. A treasure trove of a book that belongs in every home!

"This lively and engaging collection of stories recounting American history is a wonderful gift not only to the children of this country but also their parents. I can't wait to share it with my grandchildren." -Tom Brokaw

Portrait

Ever since the first grade, Jennifer Armstrong knew that she would become an author. She loved making up stories and sharing them with others. Her family treasured books and this led her to become an avid reader of all types of fiction.

Armstrong is the author of over 50 books for children from kindergarten through high school. Best known for writing historical fiction, she has also been successful in
creating picture books, easy readers, chapter books, young adult novels, as well as nonfiction.

Armstrong, who grew up outside of New York City, now lives in Saratoga Springs, New York.

Jennifer Armstrong is the winner of the Orbis Pictus Award for Outstanding Nonfiction for Shipwreck at the Bottom of the World. Many of her books have been designated as Notable Books by the American Library Association and the International Reading Association.
