This bumper collection of short and true children's stories are taken from the vivid and eventful history of the United States of America. This edition includes all of the original illustrations. A classic compendium of stories taken from more than 500 years of American history, all are written in a style perfect for children aged between six and ten. The stories begin with the era in which America was colonized, where the newfound colonies and those making the journey fended against pirates and the perils of uncharted lands. This is followed by stories of the Puritan settlers and the trials of the Salem witches. The stories from the time the United States gained independence are expertly retold; the ride of Paul Revere, the heroism of George Washington, and the various adventures of the war are recounted. We also hear of the scientific genius of the Benjamin Franklin, and the creation of America's flag; the Star-Spangled Banner. These stories are followed by many of the classics of the Old West era.
