General New York History


New York City has to be one of the greatest places in America, if not the world. Luckily for us, many authors have chronicled The Big Apple's antics in a way just right for kids.

Here are some of the books available. This is not yet a complete list, but I'm adding books to the list daily. If you wish to purchase any of these books, click on either the title or the book cover to be directed to Amazon.com. As a warning, I have put up pictures of the book covers to give you somewhat an idea of the style of each book (I know, I know. "Don't judge a book by its cover") so the pages may load slowly, depending on the speed of your internet connection.

The categories below are sorted by approximate age group and topical categories. Feel free to browse around. The same links are located on the left side of your screen. To return back to this page, simply click on the "Welcome" link on the left.

A Historical Album of New York

By Monique Avakian and Carter Smith
Surveys the history of New York State, from pre-colonial times through its industrial, political, and social development to current economic and environmental concerns. Gazetteer includes map, statistics, and other facts.

Description from Publisher

Heavily illustrated volume that provide sweeping overviews of New York's early Native American civilizations, European exploration and settlement, statehood, industrial development, and modern-day concerns. Attention is given to the role natural resources play in the areas' growth and development, as well as the contributions made by various immigrant groups. Quick facts, maps, important dates, and famous personalities are appended. Although the books are written in a clear, readable style, much of the same information can be found in the America the Beautiful series (Childrens). What sets these titles apart is the inclusion of black-and-white and full-color photographs and archival reproductions that embellish the descriptions of events. Students doing research on either of these states will glean facts easily, although they will have to look elsewhere for in-depth details
