In This Country of Ours, H. E. Marshall tells the story of America from the start of the settlements, to 1912, ending with the presidency of Woodrow Wilson. She tells it in a fashion that children are able to understand, and that will keep them interested. Marshall has filled this book with about 100 years of history, breaking them down by regions.

The way the narrations are presented is very confusing. They switch between each other in the middle of a chapter and at times in the middle of a paragraph! They have occasionally missed words and complete sentences. For example, in the first chapter, page 5, paragraph 5, sentence 2 and 3 are left out. On page 9, paragraph 1, sentence 3 reads 'Thus the first white man was laid to rest in Vineland the Good'. The word 'white' was left out - that makes a huge difference! Native people surely had been buried there, Thorvald was the first 'white' man to be buried there not the first man. Little things like these are annoyances but don't affect the overall performance.
