Journeys in Time: A New Atlas of American History (Paperback)
Americans have always been a people on the move. Journeys in Time maps twenty journeys that have shaped our national past.
In these twenty two-page spreads packed with information, young historians are introduced to stories of change—of pilgrims and pioneers, soldiers and children, explorers and adventurers building new lives and finding new worlds. From a cabin boy who sailed with Columbus to a Union soldier and a young migrant farm worker, these journeys changed the lives of those who took them.
Journeys in Time is an atlas, a book of maps. It's also a storybook. With thousands of visual and verbal facts, Elspeth Leacock, Susan Buckley, and Rodica Prato have created a new way to experience the excitement of history. Each "story map" allows you to follow in the footsteps of the real people who made American history, This is a book to savor, to learn from, to pore over, and to share.
"Journeys in Time and Places in Time are like no other historical atlases I have ever seen. This is good history, the way it should have been written long ago—to make history come alive and to help us understand that history is a journey." —Elaine Wrisley Reed, Executive Director, National Council for History Education
