Description
America is beautiful because its land and people are so varied ... 50 proud states, plus the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico ... each with its own history and heroes, landforms, and life-style. And now each has its own story told, its people profiled, its greatness celebrated, in one of the 52 volumes comprising America the Beautiful. The material covered corresponds to social studies curricula for grades 5 through 8. However, with their crisp, clear writing ... breathtaking, full-color graphics ... and wealth of factual material, logically organized to invite easy reference ... these books are completely suitable for students from grade 4 through high school. In every book of America the Beautiful, the engagingly written text covers the geography, history, government, economy, arts, and recreation of the state, concluding with an exciting "tour" of significant sights. Then comes the remarkably complete reference section, usually over 30 pages and designed in a way that allows students tofind easily the information they are looking for.

The reference section includes: -- Facts at a Glance, including key statistics on all aspects of the state, conveniently arranged by subject-- Important Dates, an outline chronology of the state's history-- Important People, dozens of profiles of the state's leading historical and contemporary men and women in politics, commerce and industry, the arts and other areas; many of these notables are pictured--
