History is dramatic - and the renowned, award-winning authors Christopher Collier and James Lincoln Collier demonstrate this in a compelling series aimed at young readers. 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.

Great overview of a less-known series of conflicts
This is the first in this history series I have listened to, but I'm impressed. My husband and I listened to this in the car with our 16 year old. We all really liked it and learned a lot. I believe it is aimed at high schoolers, but the adults enjoyed it just as well. It held all of our interest, and we all thought it was a good level of detail.
The subject is very interesting -- it can be argued that without these war(s), George Washington wouldn't have come to prominence, or the American colonies thought of seeking their independence from Britain.
The narrator was quite good and held our interest without stealing the show.

An Excellent Overview of the Time Period
A very informative presentation of the period from 1660 to 1763. After listening, I have a much better understanding of the domestic and foreign forces that led to our eventual independence from England. I look forward to listening to other books in this series.
