For one and two-semester, freshman/sophomore-level U.S. History Survey courses.Written in a clear, engaging style with a straightforward chronological organization, The American Journey introduces students to the key features of American political, social, and economic history. It gives prominent coverage to the West and South and highlights the importance of religion in American history. It makes American history accessible with an abundance of tools that help students identify important information and put it in context. Primary source documents introduce students to the concerns of the participants in history. A new feature called "American's Journey: From Then to Now," connects events and issues from the past to the concerns of the present. Compelling stories and ample use of quotations bring the past vividly alive.
