All of our bargain books are brand new, perfectly readable and represent a tremendous value!
The bargain books are, however, publisher overstocks and remainders that TRW purchases at
deep discounts. As a result, they may have a small mark through the UPC bar code or a small
mark on the side of the book. This is simply to mark the books so they cannot be sent back to
a publisher. Because of this, bargain books are non returnable to TRW unless they are damaged.
Please consider this before ordering.

Gr 4-6-Carter begins by explaining the difference between primary and secondary sources. He then discusses the reasons the Pilgrims traveled to North America, why they decided to write this Compact, and who signed it, and offers brief biographical sketches of the people who played a significant part in maintaining the colony. Illustrations, maps, and reproductions of the document help focus students' attention on the information presented. An explanation of the Thanksgiving holiday, an interview with an archivist, and information on the living-history museum in Plymouth, MA, are also included. This volume is a reliable source for reports. Articles of Confederation also begins with an explanation of primary documents and concludes with a description of special preservation methods used when storing important documents and the duties of a preservationist. The rest of the book follows the same format as The Mayflower Compact. Average-quality titles for reports, where demand warrants.-Ann Joslin, formerly at Erie County Public Library, PA Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
