'America's Living History-The Early Years,' the new history-travel book by Suzanne and Craig Sheumaker, has been named an Award-Winning Finalist in two categories of the National Best Books 2007 Awards. Competing against a wide range of new U.S. publications, the book has been recognized as among the best in both Travel: Pictorial and Travel: Guides.
'America's Living History-The Early Years' explores U.S. history from a traveler's perspective. Through 500 destination photographs and fact-filled text, it leads readers on an unusual, colorful trek into America's early years - from a land occupied by Native Peoples, to the formation of a new nation, to the initial stages of westward expansion. Along the way, it highlights the many authentically restored or reconstructed historical places that bring to life what can only be imagined through museum displays, documentaries and conventional schoolbooks. Regional maps and tourist information make travel planning easy for those who want to see these attractions in person.
The book is designed for travelers and non-travelers alike. For RVers and road trippers, it is a history-oriented travel guide. For armchair travelers and history buffs, it is a book of interesting tidbits and beautiful pictures that can be enjoyed cover-to-cover or here-and-there. For homeschool kids, it is an easy-to-read introduction to a fascinating past that remains vibrant and meaningful today.
"Our goal is to provide a refreshing new look at popular historical subjects - including Native Americans, European colonization, religious and secular groups, the road to independence, our new nation, Lewis and Clark, and the fur trade. To be recognized in the National Best Books 2007 Awards competition is quite an honor," notes co-author Suzanne Sheumaker.
The National Best Books Awards is an annual event sponsored by USABookNews.com, the premiere online magazine and review website for mainstream and independent publishing houses. The competition includes books issued during the past year by small publishing houses as well as the giants of the publishing industry, such as DK Travel, Simon & Schuster, Penguin-Putnam, HarperCollins, Random House, McGraw-Hill, Houghton Mifflin Co., and John Wiley & Sons.
