U.S. History literature

Recommended Posts

Hello. I am needing suggestions for U.S. History lit to go along with a textbook study. I can't seem to find a good list to correspond with the various time periods. I am hoping to provide my daughter with a mix of biographies, non-fiction stories, and historical fiction from which to choose. Does anyone have suggestions that are challenging and engaging?

We used the Norton Anthology of American Lit. It went along v. well with our US history course. It is organized fairly chronologically and has good introductory essays which tie the writings to what was going on in America at the time. We used the "Shorter Version", it was cheap and did the trick.

You can pick the pieces that your student would be most likely to get something out of....all kinds of reading levels available.
