Themes In History Summary

Themes In History by Nigel

Each book in this series deals with a topic in a History Study Unit at Key Stage 3 (age 11-14) of the National Curriculum. The text fills in the background to the period and gives an account of the course of events. Information is also conveyed by means of maps and diagrams. The reader is invited to analyze original source material, such as documents, illustrations and statistics, and thereby to develop appropriate skills. Focusing on the expansion of the USA in the 18th and 19th centuries, this book concentrates on the conflict between the culture of the native Americans and the new ways of life brought by white settlers. It begins with the early European colonization of North America, describes the culture of the native peoples and outlines the gradual westward expansion, from trappers and fur traders to the wagon trains and first railroads. Also considered is the popular film and comic image of the "Wild West", and the extent of its historical validity.
