"One of the biggest shocks in my younger years was realizing in my freshman year of college, how sanitized history had been in high school. There was no mention of the Indian Removal and little about how Native Americans were treated. This book does an excellent job in several ways. It covers the building and events after the completion of the Transcontinental Railroad, explaining what primary sources are, why they are important, and where they can be found. Many examples, from quotes and etchings, to photographs, advertisements and even movie stills, are included. What stands out are the notes about each and questions about whether or not all people pictured in each were treated equally. I doubt a book like this could have been sold to schools back in the 1960s when I would have devoured it. An excellent option for middle grade and public libraries to purchase. " said.
