MaineBook - 1994
This glorious panorama of America's past and present helps young readers understand how the development of each state fits into the grand mosaic of America's history ... what each state looks like physically ... who its most memorable persons have been ... its landmarks, historic sites, and natural wonders. Graphic delights greet the eye with every turn of a page -- historic engravings and woodcuts, easy-to-read maps, and superb full-color photographs. Each book also includes a Did You Know? section of fascinating, and often unusual, facts about the state. While each book can be read straight through as a fascinating story, they also contain a wealth of useful reference material, organized for easy access. Includes a reference section, maps, glossary, and an index.
