The Split History of Westward Expansion

A Perspectives Flip Book

ISBN: 978-0-7565-4596-3

by Nell Musolf

American Indians had lived in North America for thousands of years by the time European settlers arrived. The settlers came in search of land and were eager to build farms, roads, and towns. The Indians lived off the land and believed it belonged to everyone. When the U.S. government completed the Louisiana Purchase in 1803, the plan to expand the country to the Pacific Ocean set up a collision course between the two groups’ ways of life.

Perspectives Flip Books are like two books in one: start from one end and immerse yourself in one viewpoint on a major historical event. Then flip it over and immerse yourself in another, very different viewpoint. Readers will come away with deeper understanding of events and history's many perspectives.

Paperback, 64 pages
