Summary

The American Journeyengages readers by tracing the individual and collective journeys of Americans. Offering a blend of political and social histories, the book shows that living up to American ideals is an ongoing voyage-one that has become increasingly more inclusive of different groups and ideas. With the goal of making American history accessible, the authors use a strong, chronologically-organized narrative, with an emphasis on regional balance, and provide readers with the tools they need to understand history. The concise edition concentrates on the journey of individuals and groups that shape America with a trade-like, full color narrative format.
