    2. Another encyclopedia that I find myself pulling off the shelf every now and then This one covers the key people, places, and events regarding exploration of North America, from the pre Columbian years through the 20th century Despite having a surprisingly small number of maps and illustrations, the simple thumbnail entries and sidebar quotations make this book a valuable resource for upper grade elementary and secondary school research projects.

    3.
