Many document readers offer lots of sources, but only Going to the Source combines a rich diversity of primary and secondary sources with in-depth instructions for how to use each type of source. Mirroring the chronology of the U.S. history survey, each of the main chapters familiarizes students with a single type of source from personal letters to political cartoons while focusing on an intriguing historical episode such as the Cherokee Removal or the 1894 Pullman Strike. A capstone chapter in each volume prompts students to synthesize information on a single topic from a variety of source types. The wide range of topics and sources across 28 chapters provide students with all they need to become fully engaged with Americas history.
