What is A History of US?
History is chronological and so is this 10-book series: Book one begins thousands of years ago with people walking and boating toward an unknown continent. Book three deals with the revolutionary and constitution-making era. Book six tackles the Civil War. Book ten ends with the election of Barack Obama. These small books are easy to read, and there's none of the intimidation that comes with behemoth texts. A History of US is an attempt to break the textbook mold.
