How can all these dates and details make more sense? Infographics! The charts, maps, and illustrations in this book tell a visual story to help you better understand key concepts about our country's history. Crack open this book to explore mind-boggling questions such as: * What can we learn about America's earliest peoples based on what they left behind? * Why did people come to the United States? * How did American inventions change the world? The answers will help you see straight!
