Fantastic American history textbook for junior high students.
From Sea To Shining Sea Student Text The Story Of America is a FANTASTIC American history text from the Catholic Textbook Project!! I KNOW it's expensive, but this book has been truly worth the cost!
When I first got my hands on this book I ended up reading it almost cover to cover (before I realized it was 2 a.m. and I should be sleeping.) We read almost exclusively living books in our homeschool and I rearranged our curriculum so my children could have such an excellent book as part of their schooling.
The introduction on page ix states, "As this volume shows, it (Catholic Textbook Project) will be a series which on the one hand honors the Catholic faith and on the other is not afraid to be honest and comprehensive in its treatment of the past." I have found this statement to be absolutely true in this textbook.
If I weren't Catholic, I'd like this book. The full color maps and pictures, along with the interesting insets and the well-balanced, age appropriate text all work together to make From Sea To Shining Sea Student Text The Story Of America THE BEST AMERICAN HISTORY TEXT for junior high ages on the market!
