At last, American history is more than presidents and robber barons, elections and battles, names and dates to memorize. Who Built America? is about working Americans -- artisans, servants, slaves, farm families, laborers, women working in the home, factory hands, and office clerks -- who played crucial roles in shaping modern America: what they thought, what they did, and ...more

I read the CD-ROM of this about 10 or so years ago. It's incredible and incredibly rich.

I'm so glad I chose this book for the upcoming school year!
