Publisher's Summary

Andrew Jackson’s America examines the events and personalities, particularly President Andrew Jackson, that shaped the development of the United States during the first half of the 19th century. Learn about the influence that Andrew Jackson had on the way America developed, the industrial revolution and the beginning of the two-party system.
History is dramatic - and the renowned, award-winning authors Christopher Collier and James Lincoln Collier demonstrate this in a compelling series aimed at young listeners. Covering American history from the founding of Jamestown through present day, these volumes explore far beyond the dates and events of a historical chronicle to present a moving illumination of the ideas, opinions, attitudes, and tribulations that led to the birth of this great nation.

Has Andrew Jackson’s America: 1824-1850 turned you off from other books in this genre?

nope


Any additional comments?

In the first section the author explains the idea of spending time on ideas & themes rather than dates & names as the best way to learn history. I agree. However the product here is so bland as to be useless. This may be of utility to 5-7th graders but not beyond. The description should have identified the target audience.
