What if Texas had remained independent? What is the US had peacefully divided into two (or more) nations instead of engaging in civil war? This unusual text, written in a simple writing style for undergraduates, takes a close look at ten important historical turning points between 1800 and the Civil War, including the Lewis and Clark expedition, the War of 1812, the Mexican War, and the California Gold Rush. After providing a detailed review of each historical instance, the book offers a thought-provoking alternative scenario and stimulates critical thinking with discussion questions. B&w photos and historical illustrations, a chronology, and an appendix of major documents are included. Editor information is not given. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
