Story of the Thirteen Colonies
By: H. A. Guerber (1859-1929)
These short vignettes of American history are written for the young reader. Each one is a little capsule of a person or event. They run from the pre-Columbian era through the end of the American War of Independence. Some of the expressions and language reflect attitudes of the 18th century that seem out of place from the vantage of the 21st century, but these nuggets of history give a glimpse into that era.
