Synopsis: Fourteen famous photos are featured in this two-volume set. Each striking phoro is accompanied by an extensive history that gives the background of the event, the setting, characters, and the photographer. A unique way to study U.S. history.

From School Library Journal: Grade 7-10-The first volume spans 85 years of American history, while the second covers only 13. In each book, Wakin looks at seven well-known photographs that capture a significant event, individual, or episode in U.S. history. Accompanying each picture is a four-to-five page summary that sets the scene, discusses the picture's effect on the public, and provides information on the photographer. "Earthrise," the view of our planet from the Apollo 8 spacecraft; Old Faithful, and the Lincoln portrait are the only photographs that do not portray civilian or military confrontation, or economic deprivation. Without a doubt, all of the events chronicled are an important part of American history. However, the fact that three of the seven photographs in the second book deal with the Vietnam War indicate the author's bias and is sure to confirm young peoples' notion that history is a dismal collection of disparate facts. Also, the two volumes could have been compacted into a single book without diminishing their effectiveness. Not a priority purchase.
