It was a massive undertaking but well worth the time and effort for the future of the states and for the knowledge that was able to be given to the world. Ambrose did a fantastic job of explaining what seemed to be every detail of available information in order to create this masterpiece. Ambrose put his all into every page to try to make it flow and be as exciting as he could make it. Even though there were a few pages I would completely stop paying attention too as I read over the page, there were others parts that really grabbed my attention. This book was required to be read and reviewed, and I only finished the first 200 pages, since I’m a huge procrastinator (shocking I know) but I do plan on finishing this book.

White people have told their story how they want it to be heard, making themselves out to be the heroes who conquered the native savages. Ortiz states the problem about our history being inaccurate, offers many examples of inaccuracies and inconsistencies between the
Anderson’s book “The Sixties” is a great book to read in order to really understand the era that was the sixties. It is not just a historical book, but it gives history life and makes you realize the significance of that time period and how the movements created the world that it is now. It is also a nice reminder to fight for what you believe in, because all it takes is courage to speak up, a few slogans and before you know it you will be changing the world, one movement at a
This is about what will basically treat this comparison of these historic persons that wrote their experiences in America.

Writer Alden Vaughn, who wrote a book New England Frontier: Puritans and Indians, 1620-1675, which this book is really explicit toward the Puritans and Indians. He feels like one was unified, visionary, disciplined, and dynamic while the other was divided, self-satisfied, undisciplined, and static. Also saying that the Puritans and Indians couldn’t live side by side with no penetration of more fragmented and passive by the more consolidated and active.

Dear Classmate, A Child Called “It” is one of my favorite books. I read it for the first time in my speech class for my speech about child abuse. I had heard a lot about it and how good it was so I decided to read it. Unlike other novels lying around, this book caught my attention and kept me very interested, I could not put it down. It makes you think about what some kids go through everyday.This book was a definite eye opener to abuse.

He’ll teach creative writing at Indian schools and try to help the struggling children, but many of them got it, some didn't. Alexie did not give up on the children as they have already given up on themselves.
