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.

Annotation:

In 1829 Andrew Jackson became the seventh president of the United States, the first who did not come from a wealthy, east coast family. Jackson led an adventurous—some would say notorious—life. More than any president before him, he sought to represent the voters—at this time, only white men—and the common people who, in his view, built and sustained the nation. In addition to supporting slavery, Jackson's policy of forcing American Indians to move West led to disaster, including the death of thousands on the Trail of Tears. President Jackson left a controversial legacy that modern Americans still grapple with.

Gr 8 Up—These titles effectively encapsulate the lives of men whose reputations are so nearly mythic as to make most of them recognizable by their last names only. The authors include episodes that are at odds with the lionized reputations, but add an emotional and psychological dimension. For instance, the hotheaded, occasionally violent Andrew Jackson was deeply committed to his tender, sweet wife Rachel Donelson Robards, and the outdoorsy, boisterous Theodore Roosevelt was grief-stricken to the point of despondency when his first wife, Alice Hathaway Lee, died at the age of 22. The illustrations are well-curated and excellently reproduced. The sepia-toned stars and stripes motif in the borders and backgrounds complements the presidential subject matter. VERDICT Succinct, informative, and compelling, this series is a must-have for most libraries.Just as Mother Nature saves some of her most spectacular feats for autumn, so too it seems does the world of series nonfiction. Any of the selections reviewed here would make solid additions to school and public library collections. For those looking for a multifaceted approach to popular landmarks or icons of the United States, check out Bearport's "American Places" and The Child's World's "Highly Guarded Places." Consider Capstone's "American Indian Life" to update collections on Native American tribes. And lastly, for those with election-hungry students, Creative Education's "How America Works" is a great primer for government classes. Librarians and teachers, purchase these series with confidence.. Copyright 2016 School Library Journal.
