Great book. Helps children understand American history. It is very interesting and Christian based. I'll be using it as part of my home-school curriculum.
Peter Marshall books are A++++++

My oldest girls and I read this series, The Light and the Glory and From Sea to Shining Sea, together for American History. My younger daughter and I will do the same, plus I've bought the younger versions and activity books to go with them. We met Mr. Marshall when he visited our area years ago. He is a dedicated American and believer. The information he gathered from our government archives is truth rarely seen in American History books or heard in classrooms. It is forgotten truths straight from the historical documents put together in such an interesting read. It is heart warming and heart breaking and leaves you in awe of God.
A good book for Christian home-schoolers.

This is great for Christian homeschooling moms. My daughter, who is homeschooling all her children, asked me to buy it for her.
A continuation of the great Christian heritage of our nation
Published by Thriftbooks.com User , 23 years ago
Once I read The Light and The Glory with my children, I knew that their education in American history would not be complete without this book. We were not disappointed. This book continues the narration of the great Christian heritage of the USA. As the settlers struggled to carve out a nation and our fledgling country grappled with issues between ourselves, our neighboring countries, and the Native American nation within our new boundaries, faith in God prevailed. The evidence for perseverence in faith is an inspiration to my children when they face daily struggles that are not as monumental. "Review" questions stimulate deep thought about the moral responsibility each one of us has to our country and our God. As with the first book, this is a great character building tool for our future citizens.
