*"A treasure chest of history come to life, this is an inspired collection. Readers could easily get lost in it by simply dipping into one compelling story after another . . . Because the book is packed with historical documents, evocatively illustrated . . . and full fo eyewitness quotations, it should prove valuable to young historians and researchers." -Starred, School Library Journal
Exhilarating and revelatory history . . . MUST reading for today's youth as well as their elders.
