This thorough and unique illustrated timeline traces the history of Canada, the United States, Mexico, and the islands of the Caribbean beginning around 13,000 BCE. Concise blurbs put important events in a continent-wide context, providing readers with a valuable sense of perspective. Accessible text presents the horrors of this continent’s history—the genocide, slavery, and discrimination perpetrated by European colonizers and their descendants—and the survival of the very people those in power sought to erase and subjugate. Young historians can read this book page-by-page, or spread the timeline out for a bird’s-eye view. Source notes raise crucial questions about how and why history is presented. The author provides a list of resources for those who want to look further. Ages 9-12
