Book by Tindall, George Brown, Shi, David . Of course all history textbooks have their drawbacks; however, America: A Narrative History makes up for any drawbacks with adequate coverage of most subjects. One major issue of history textbooks I've used in the past was that the authors didn't cover certain subjects, topics, events, and laws well enough.
America: A Narrative History. Tindall and Shi managed to confuse me, on topics I already knew everything about. This survey covers America's history from pre-Columbian civilizations to the Civil War Reconstruction. Includes major events & figures; the social effects of major conflicts; immigration statistics; more. In their miserable attempt to create an "interesting" textbook, all they succeeded in doing was make up or exaggerate stuff about certain religious groups or historical figures that is completely false, and confuse people.
AMERICA A Narrative History David Emory Shi George Brown Tindall. n. W. NORTON & COMPANY, INC. New York, London. From the start of our collaboration in 1984, George Tindall and I strove to write an engaging book focused on political and economic developments but animated by colorful characters, informed by balanced analysis and social texture, and guided by the unfolding of key events. Those classic principles, combined with a handy format and low price, have helped make America: A Narrative History one of the most popular and well-respected American history textbooks.
