History is dramatic - and the renowned, award-winning authors Christopher Collier and James Lincoln Collier demonstrate this in a compelling series aimed at young listeners. Covering American history from the founding of Jamestown through present day, these volumes explore far beyond the dates and events of a historical chronicle to present a moving illumination of the ideas, opinions, attitudes, and tribulations that led to the birth of this great nation.

not from this genre, but from this series
In the first section the author explains the idea of spending time on ideas & themes rather than dates & names as the best way to learn history. I agree. However the product here is so bland as to be useless. This may be of utility to 5-7th graders but not beyond. The description should have identified the target audience.
