Its unique approach will provide children with new ways of thinking about and learning from history, and instil a lasting sense of our country's past.The World Made New provides a detailed account of the charting of the New World and the long-term effects of America's march into history. The text uses primary sources to bring history to life and features evocative profiles of the major explorers of the age.

The narrative carries young readers through this age of glorious, and sometimes inglorious, adventure.
