I purchased this book for my teen-aged grandchildren, who found it very interesting and helpful; and then, I read it myself. I am so impressed by this author’s contribution to the education of students of any age. She gives an overview and a chronological timeline which helps with context and “the big picture.” Her message is inspiring and logically presented. To preserve our liberty, our citizens must have accurate knowledge of our country’s history. As Maccullough says, “There must be a meaning to all of this history…Out of conviction, endurance, and sacrifice has come all that we hold most dear.” I wholeheartedly recommend this book — from grade school to grandparents and anyone who is passionate about preserving our liberty!
