See series description for full review.

The History of Our United States is the first of A Beka's three overviews of American history in general. The first section contains geography material, definitions of terms, a basic atlas... but the book quickly moves from there to actual history. The visual features of the book make the student's first formal study of United States history positive and enjoyable. Important concepts are underlined; important names and terms printed in bold type. Most chapters offer a map of the places covered and several a timeline of the events, as well as numerous paintings and photographs. Comprehension questions are scattered through the text, and each chapter ends with review questions.

A Beka does not sell their materials to retail bookstores, preferring instead to sell their products through representatives and through their website. As a result, we can offer only used A Beka, and can't guarantee we'll get it. We offer here the current retail price of the book for your information, but if our page does not say "Buy Used," we do not have a copy.
