Personal Introduction To The Stories of America Series By Alex Haley
The first historians were storytellers. They told the history of their village or town or kingdom from memory. Musicians often accompanied them on stringed instruments. Together the words and music told of adventures and conflicts, of glory and troubles, of failures and triumphs. And the audience of learners listened—entertained and inspired.
Today history is often presented as an assembly line of facts and skills. Information is offered without the music of a story.
Also lost in this mass of facts and skills are the people whose lives built our nation's history. People of all kinds and colors—African Americans, Hispanics, women, Asian Americans, Native Americans, and many others—are missing from our history.
Steck-Vaughn Stories of America returns people and the storyteller's music to history. It offers a rich portrait of the diversity of peoples who have made our national saga unique among the histories of the world.
So read Stories of America and listen to the music of your history and witness the sights, sounds, smells, and life of your past.
