Description
"A Place Called America takes the long view of the land's history from its earliest formation and inhabitants up through today. Meet those indigenous to the deserts, prairies, forests, and shores of the land called Turtle Island and their relatives who contributed to World War II and whose ideas founded the basis of the Constitution. Meet immigrant communities, who came to the land from all around the world-at different times and against all odds, such as staunch United States immigration policy. And meet enslaved ancestors who were brought to the land against their will and whose labor and experience changed the story forever. Expert picture book maker Jennifer Thermes deftly weaves the threads of these communities' narratives together, while giving each the spotlight they deserve-using the land itself as a unifying lens. Illustrated with dazzling maps, A Place Called America is a visual delight. It is an info-packed read, with sidebars, an author's note, and a timeline supplementing the accessible text. A Place Called America will challenge its readers to think critically about the stories we tend to take for granted about our own history"--,Provided by publisher.
