Another fine history book for children! Published in 1917, Marshall’s book of stories from the history of the United States begins with accounts of exploration and settlement, and ends with the presidency of Woodrow Wilson.

This is Part 1: Stories of Explorers and Pioneers, from Leif Ericson to Sir Walter Raleigh. Read along and view the original illustrations at mainlesson.com.

Reviews

This Country Of Ours

(3.5 stars)

Good reading,Kara Shallenberg is brilliant, but there are some mispronunciations with the Viking words. I would recommend this book as a children's guide to American history from the 800s AD to the 1600s. This is a superb book except for the old-fashioned language, I think they should record a modern version of this book.

GREAT JOB!
