This collection of nine books is included in Sonlight's History / Bible / Literature D. If you don't need notes or a schedule, but are just looking for some excellent supplemental reading about early American history, this book collection is for you. Who lived in the Americas before Europeans and Africans arrived? How did the different people groups interact? How did they persevere? What was the Revolutionary War like?

These American history homeschool books begin with history before the Pilgrims and end in the mid-1800s. Former Librarian of Congress Daniel Boorstin's Landmark History of the American People specializes in the details of history. Why did Georgia struggle as a "charity colony" (and what does that even mean)? Why did the sea tie some colonies to England, yet open others to the world? How did the population grow? How were American cities different from European cities? What was so important about the Erie Canal? These are fascinating stories! This full-color text includes timelines, maps, and illustrations.

To supplement the stories of Boorstin, you'll also enjoy the Smithsonian's Children's Encyclopedia of American History, a book with short articles and copious illustrations, and The Beginner's American History, a book with classic Americana stories. Don't miss it!

You'll also enjoy American history books about specific topics: Columbus's voyage, the Lewis and Clark Corps of Discovery expedition, a book on the Constitution, and several others.
