Information on All the People 1945-1999 from the publisher:
A History of US is a 10-volume storyteller's history of our nation written for young people from 9 to 99. It begins tens of thousands of years ago with some hunters and seagoers who head east in search of game and fish. The story continues through time and place, telling of others who sail west over a broad ocean to the same opulent land. Together these diverse peoples create a New World and make it their own. All the People takes readers from the final days of World War II to the inauguration of Bill Clinton as the 42nd President of the United States. As recounted by storyteller Joy Hakim, this tumultuous era comes to life for readers both young and old.
