About

Overview

The early nineteenth century in the United States was a study of contrasts. On the one hand, the Jazz Age brought cultural liberation, vivacity, and reckless consumption; on the other, the Great Depression brought poverty and desperation to millions. This title, aimed at students in Grades 4+, explores these periods in American history through the eyes of the people who lived them.
