This Country Of Ours (eBook)
Sobre o livro
First published in 1917, This Country of Ours is an engaging and accessible introduction to American history by H. E. Marshall, the celebrated English writer noted for her numerous popular works of history for children. Having written detailed histories of many countries other than America including the United Kingdom, Australia, India, Canada, Scotland, Germany, and France, her books were well-loved for their expansive histories that were presented in a format that both interested and entertained young audiences. In This Country of Ours, Marshall chronicles American history beginning with the Revolutionary War and continuing through World War I. Rather than presenting the history of the nation as a dry recounting of statistics and dates, Marshall instead focused on the nations distinct regions and the events that both shaped those regions and, in turn, affected the entire nation. The result is a history that captures the character of America, its love for pioneering ideas and innovation, and its unique and diverse citizens. This edition includes a biographical afterword.
