From These Beginnings, Eighth Edition, Volume I Roderick Nash and Gregory Graves, "University of California, Santa Barbara"
"From These Beginnings" looks at history through engaging biographical portraits of well-known men and women whose personalities and contributions helped to create the nation and society. Each biography offers a uniquely personal and provocative glimpse into the lives of these Americans, and shows how their experiences are linked to historical events, covering everything from the environment to popular culture. "From These Beginnings" can be used as a stand-alone core text, or as a supplement to any American history survey course, inviting students to see history not as a collection of names and dates, but as an evolving tale about people like themselves, people whose complexity of thoughts, feelings, and actions changed and formed the path of the nation.
At the end of each chapter, "For Consideration" questions allow students to review and analyze what they have just read, encouraging them to think critically about the important concepts and themes in each individual biography.
New to the Eighth Edition Updated research and bibliographies throughout the volume reflect current scholarship in the field. A new chapter on Harriet Beecher Stowe, who galvanized the nation against the horrors of slavery with her pivotal work, "Uncle Tom's Cabin, " adds even more depth to this collection.
