The Middle West in American History

" Dr. Clark's book reveals three centuries of pioneer conquest of the present United States. The staples of exploration, fur trade, transportation, Indians, and early government are deftly linked to geographic influences - and admir- ably so to the recurring fact. Architecturally, the volume is built on three parts: the West under Spain, France and England with 166 pages; the Middle West of 236 pages; and the Far West in 223 pages. Resource can be used with the following standards to further develop lessons: 1st grade SS 1.23 Cultural Makeup, 8th grade SS 8.25 Iowa Government, and SS-Geo. 9-12.24 Iowans Influence Iowa Environment.
