Perspectives on History

The Perspectives on History series contains firsthand accounts from colonists to astronauts. There are 75 volumes in the series, which rely on journals, letters, advertisements, essays, poems, newspaper accounts, songs, cartoons, maps, illustrations, and photos. Representative titles include Life in the American Colonies, Indians of the Southwest, The Underground Railroad, The Lowell Mill Girls, and The Vietnam War. Other volumes cover the immigrant experience, America at war, the civil rights movement, technology development, and political and religious history. With many of the books containing firsthand accounts from teenagers, the materials engage today's students. Accounts from women and minorities highlight the diversity of American history. Educator Guides available from History Compass. Ages 12-Adult.
