nior collection. These series cover a number of sub-:
jects, including biographies of outstanding men and
women, Indians of North America, world history, natu-:

our collection, and provide our students with a wealth’
of information for reports and projects.
American Women of Achievement (Chelsea House).
"Remember the ladies," wrote Abigail Adams to her!
husband, John, who was a delegate to the Continental .
Congress as the Founding Fathers met in Philadelphia i
to form a new nation in March, 1776. Abigail Adams
was one of the earliest advocates of woman's rights.
Although women and the work they did was not rec-
ognized until recent years, they nevertheless played an
integral part in the founding, settling and building of
our country. This series of biographies includes such
outstanding women as Anne Hutchinson, 17th century
charismatic religious leader; Phyllus Wheatley, 18th
century black slave poet; Susan B. Anthony, 19th cen-
tury women's rights leader and advocate of women
suffrage; Amelia Earhart, 20th century adventurer and
the first woman to cross the Atlantic by air. These bi-
ographies are important examples of people with vi-
sion who have looked outside themselves from their
goals and have struggled against great odds to achieve
Black American of Achievement (Chelsea House).
Black Americans, as well as women, have not re-
ceived recognition for their achievements until recent
years. Yet their accomplishments form a large portion
of our history rich in every field of endeavor. The se-
ries includes such outstanding individuals as Langston
Hughs, poet; Lena Horne. entertainer; Matthew
Hensen, explorer; Paul Cuffe, merchant and abolition-
ist; Adam Clayton Powell, Jr., political leader; Louis
Armstrong, musician, and many more. These great
men and women are a tribute to the spirit of our demo-
cratic ideals and this system in which they have flour-
History of the World (Raintree Publishers).
This series covers world history from prehistoric
times through the classical period until the spread of
Christianity and the dawning of the Renaissance in
Western Europe. Each volume covers a particular area,
such as the History of Greece and Rome, Civilization
of Asia, Civilization of the Middle East, Civilization
of the Americas, and others. In addition, to providing a
summary of the historical events in each region, the
series discusses the interaction of cultural influence,
the art and literature of the period, and the every day
life. A wealth of maps and full color illustrations com-
plement the text and provide a unique experience of
history for middle grade students.

Indians of North America (Chelsea House)
This series examines the problems that develop
when peoples of different cultures come together. The
lack of a common point of reference produce tragedy,
suffering, bigotry and exploitation. For the Spanish
conquistadors, the Indians were a source of cheap la-
bor, while the French traders and trappers viewed them
as a means of obtaining pelts, and the English scorned
them and ruthlessly pushed them out of the way. The
goal of this series is to illuminate the issues and con-
flicts involving the American Indians today, and to
promote a greater understanding of Indian history and
World Leaders, Past and Present (Chelsea House).
Ralph Waldo Emerson has said that a great leader
exhibits new possibilities to all humanity. "We feed on
genius . . Great men exist that there may be greater
men. " The concept of leadership implies the proposi-
tion that individuals can make a difference in the
world. Men and women throughout history have
demonstrated the capacity to inspire and mobilize the
masses so that they can act together in pursuit of a
common end. Sometimes these ends are bad, as in the
case of Adolf Hitler, and sometimes the ends are good,
as in the case of George Washington, Abraham
Lincoln, and many more. In any case, a great leader is
one who leaves his personal stamp on history for better
or for worse. This series covers outstanding men and
women from all countries of the world, who have
made a difference in the struggle of humanity toward
emancipation and fulfillment.
World Nature Encyclopedia (Raintree Publishers).
From the grandeur of the mountains to the spare
beauty of the desert and the lush abundance of the
tropical forests, the World Nature Encyclopedia ex-
plores the ecology of the earth and the interaction be-
tween plant and animal life within its environment.
The authors discuss the history and geography of each
area as a background for environmental studies. Each
volume covers a specific portion of the globe, such as
the Mountains of Europe, Western Asia, Central
America, etc. The series is beautifully illustrated with
full color photographs, charts and maps.
