Published by Gale

"The program loaded easily. Text and pictures printed sharp and clean. The teacher's guide presents five lessons and units to help teachers and librarians integrate resources into the classroom curriculum. For research on great Americans or research projects from 20th century American history, you should consider this CD-ROM. Highly recommended."
