We Take School POs
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 2-5-Bial looks at periods of American history through the lenses of four geographic- and period-specific types of communities. Each one is carefully placed within its greater historical context, then vibrantly depicted in its daily life and significant events. Solid information is packed into each volume. Cow Towns follows cattle trails and railroads that brought longhorns, cattlemen, prospectors, and townspeople together in a relatively brief season of glory days in the West. Settlements journeys into the wilderness along the Cumberland Trail with homesteaders carving out a life in the forests of the Midwest. Longhouses visits the tribes of the Iroquois Confederacy around the Great Lakes. Missions depicts life in California and the Southwest where Catholic priests converted Native Americans to Christianity. The writing is clear and heavy on facts, with ample back matter to facilitate reports. Full-color photographs of artifacts, restored objects, and sites and period reproductions and maps enhance the texts. While other books treat these topics with varying degrees of coverage and depth, Bial's depictions of daily life are especially strong and well developed in these handsome titles.-Joyce Adams Burner, Hillcrest Library, Prairie Village, KS Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
