Journeys in Time: A New Atlas of American History is a fantastic history resource that traces the history of America through maps and stories. America is defined by movement, from the First Nations people to European settlement to slaves to immigrants. This unique book features two-page spreads that highlight individuals' journeys; some are famous, like Christopher Columbus, the Mayflower, Daniel Boone and the Wilderness Road, and Lewis and Clark, while others focus more on events and the common people who lived through them-Rosa Cristoforo's immigration from Italy to America, Graciela Moreno's cyclical journeys as a migrant worker. Beginning with the Anishinabe origin story through one boy's exit from Vietnam in 1976, this resource is a unique way to interact with maps, movement, and the past. 48 indexed pages, softcover. Grades 4-7.
