Where to Purchase


From Sea to Shining Sea for Young Readers tells America's story during its first fifty years. These were the days of Benjamin Franklin and Daniel Boone, Francis Asbury and Charles Finney, Andrew Jackson and Sam Houston. During these years Conestoga wagons and circuit riders became famous, Indian wars and slavery were major concerns, and the Louisiana Purchase and the Oregon Trail expanded American boundaries from sea to shining sea. But God was also at work in the young nation, giving its settlers opportunities to shape its history and to be His people.

This book brings to life the exciting era between 1787 and 1837 for young readers ages 9 to 12. Study questions and answers for each chapter and a glossary of terms are included.
