I used a set of books called "American Adventures" when I was teaching that was published by Scholastic. I am now retired and I thought my grandchildren would love the stories in the book. I thought this might just be a paper version of a portion of the book. It is not. While the stories are relatively interesting, they don't compare to the Scholastic version...

I enjoyed "American Adventures Part 2" immensely. I'm sorry I didn't have this book when I was going to school. The choice of subjects are well chosen. The story of the decimation of the American Buffalo to near extinction moved me. The cruelty of such an act act can never be forgiven.

I use this for my fourth grader's US History homeschool curriculum, and we both greatly enjoy it. It's interesting without going overboard on unnecessary details, and never too long. We enjoy the discussions and activities, Dan I really do feel like she is learning from it. I just wish there were more of these!

American Adventures, True Stories from America’s Past, Part 2: 1870-Present

This well-written follow-up to the author’s American Adventures, True Stories from America’s Past, 1770-1870 presents key moments of change in American history. Designed for Middle School readers, these episodes describe issues that redirected the path of the nation.

Eleanor Roosevelt becomes an alternate presence of the President, listening and responding to a wounded nation. The loss of the buffalo introduces questions about the environment. Rosa Parks’ refusal to change seats on the bus fans the flames of the Civil Rights movement.

Following each story, a time-frame places the incident into the historical setting and keywords illustrate the issues. The “Think It Through/Take A Side” exercise creates dialog that many school settings would not offer.

Greenberg engages readers with digestible stories and provocative topics for discussion among younger readers and between adults and those readers. A wonderful resource for the study of US history.

I found Part 2 just as fascinating as American Adventures Part 1. Part 2 continues to provide interesting true stories and also follows with a timeline for each story of the period that I found very helpful. I highly recommend it.
