The content is the same, but fewer chapters are listed, as some of the related stories in the hardcover version have been combined into one chapter.

Category Description for History Books by Edward Eggleston:

Looking for history books that will make you proud to be an American? Look no further! These books were written more than 100 years ago, much closer to the events that helped shape the United States into a great nation. Emphasis is on great Americans - meaning explorers, statesmen, war heroes, inventors, writers, scientists, artists, and plain ordinary people - who made a difference. The lives of these men and women demonstrate the virtues which children need to see modeled today. The stories are captivating, and the illustrations are beautiful. To make it easier on the teacher, study questions are provided at the end of each chapter.

We've been using this book as part of our 3rd grade history curriculum My son loves it The book is about many "Great Americans" from Ben Franklin to George Washington Daniel Boone Daniel Webster and many more There are specific stories about each person For example the section on Daniel Boone explains briefly who he was and what he's famous for then goes into a story about how Daniel tricked the Native Americans who were hunting him and got away It seems the men were following Daniel's footprints and Daniel jumped onto a wild grapevine hanging from a tree and swung out as far as he could and jumped When the men came to the end of Daniel's prints they couldn't tell where he'd gone and Daniel was able to escape back to the safety of his cabin There are many fun stories like this one in this book I'd definitely recommend it!

This book has a lot of good stories with topics easy for young students to understand The only drawback to the book is the flow or composition I'm not sure if it's just because of the acceptable writing style when it was authored but the grammar flow of some sentences can be tricky to read The reading level is simple--for 2nd or 3rd graders to read and the stories are usually brief I still recommend it as a good history storybook for young students My 5-year-old son likes it
