The Young United States" is a great book and it will fascinate both adults and teenagers. For those who like his emphasis on material culture, I would also recommend that they check out the work of another American master illustrator, Eric Sloane. Any book by Edwin Tunis and Eric Sloane deserve only the highest praise. An excellent reference for anyone interested in the development of America from 1783 to 1830. It covers virtually all aspects of the of the foundation for a new nation, and contains beautiful illustrations with clear written descriptions. It is a valuable reference for historic interperters and reenactors covering this time period.

When it comes to American history books for young adults, there are very few books that cover the period from the end of the Revolutionary War to the beginning of the Civil War. Sadly, the Jacksonian Age is all but ignored. Into this vacumm stepped Edwin Tunis, one of the great illustrators and authors of young adult, non-fiction books.

"The Young United States" traces the development of material culture of the country as its people pushed west from the Eastern Seaboard into the the North American interior. Tunis is fascinated by the such mundane but important things as changes in fashion, sailing ships, coaches, roads, and agricultural machinery. Fortunately, not only does Tunis write very well but his pencil illustrations are extraordinary. In my opinion, Tunis was on the great American illustrators of the Twentieth Century.

An excellent reference for anyone interested in the development of America from 1783 to 1830. It covers virtually all aspects of the of the foundation for a new nation, and contains beautiful illustrations with clear written descriptions. It is a valuable reference for historic interperters and reenactors covering this time period. Throughout this book there are extensive examples of clothing/hair styles, occupations,transportation, manufacture, entertainment,commerce, and education that formed the basis of culture in the emerging United States of America.

Having worked on compiling family history and including some info on the "times", I'm sorry I didn't have this book earlier. I can appreciate that one paragraph might contain information gleaned from multiple sources. Like the other Tunis books, it is a labor of love and is a wonderful resource!

This volume in Tunis's trilogy of social histories (the others are "Colonial Living" and "Frontier Living") focuses on an era that tends not to be as closely studied by most people as are the Revolutionary era and the 19th Century, which means that books about it are thin on the ground. But if, by some chance, it's one of your interests, "The Young United States" is a book you must definitely add to your collection. With Tunis's trademark highly detailed pen-and-ink illo's and clear, well-written commentary, it provides an excellent overview of how all levels of society lived during the 40-odd years under consideration. I found it indispensable in determining how the father of one of my fictional characters--a veteran of the War of 1812--would have grown up and what his surroundings would have been like in Federal America. Adult researchers should not fail to consult it.

I love Tunis' books, they are chock full of drawings of everyday things so you get a feel of what was available in those times. Fun to browse and fun for kids.
