I am not sure I can praise these highly enough to do them justice. Besides being extremely well-written, the books are packed with unique graphics, including rarely-seen photographs from all stages of the subject's life, posters and advertisements pertaining to current events of the day, relevant maps, and other personal artifacts. Each one begins with a timeline charting the historical figure's life from birth to death. A short overview of the individual's major achievements serves as an introduction, and the rest of the biography follows in chronological order. Sterling Biographies go above and beyond the mere retelling of historical facts, providing a wealth of insight into the character and personality of these great Americans. ~ Rachel P.
