    About "H.E. Marshall"

    1. H.E. Marshall

      Henrietta Elizabeth Marshall usually credited as H.E Marshall was a Scottish author, particularly well known for her works of popular national history for children.H.E Marshall is famous for her 1905 children s history of England, Our Island Story A History of England for Boys and Girls, illustrated by A S Forrest In the USA the book was entitled An Island Story The book was a bestseller, was printed in numerous editions, and for fifty years was the standard and much loved book by which children learned the history of England However a lot of this book is historically inaccurate and much of it uses Shakespeare s plays for historical sources for example, the section of Richard III is really a summary of the play The book is still to be found in schools and homes, but the last printing was in 1953 and it went out of print in the 1960s In 2005, an alliance of the Civitas think tank and various national newspapers brought the book back into print, with the aim of sending a free copy to each of the UK s primary schools Readers of The Daily Telegraph contributed 25,000 to the cost of the reprint.She was educated at a girls boarding school called Laurel Bank, in Melrose Between 1901 and 1904 she was the superintendent of a hall of residence for female students at the University of Glasgow, but, otherwise, she appears to have made her living throughout her life by writing She never married.As is made clear by the Prefaces of her books from time to time, she travelled extensively after 1904, including to Melbourne, California and China, although her obituary in The Times stated that she spent most of her life in Oxford and in London, where she died.

    1. A wonderful forest view of American history. This book is of a higher reading level than "Our Island Home", so it can be slower reading. For a book written in 1917, it has aged well, though students will need to be reminded that the book was written during WWI and references to "of all the presidents" doesn't include any presidents past Woodrow Wilson (who was President when this was published). I also found later chapters can loose their whimsy as they consist of a meld of the list of President [...]


    2. Got through Chapter 56 and calling it a day. I just can't see any point in subjecting myself to the bias any more. Please, please, please pre-read this before starting it with your children. Marshall was of her time, and relatively open minded in that context. As an adult, I can fully appreciate that. But she was a racist nonetheless, and young children can't really understand what that idea "of her time" even means. Such context requires a fundamental understanding of history *first*.The sheer [...]


    3. I am reading this aloud to my 7-year-old son for our U.S. History. We started last year.What I Like:He loves reading it. If we haven't read from it in a while, he requests it.It focuses in pretty good detail on the history of the founding of the United States of America.It uses very big, uncommon words. Adults think that there's no way a young child will follow along or understand them, but I think we are seeing evidence that our son does get a lot out of it, part of which is a larger vocabulary [...]


    4. Recommended for American history for homeschoolers. Concise chapters made it easy for my boys to listen. From Viking exploration to President Wilson, this book helped us learn in depth stories of our country. I particularly enjoyed the stories of the first colonies, and was startled by the continued upstarts and failures of them! This was a school book we all enjoyed and learned from. Well layed out stories by chapter, but my copy had lots of typos:(


    5. This wasn't quite as entertaining to me as "Our Island Story", but I still loved it!! It had so many cool details that I never got to hear from my normal history books. I loved hearing more of the French, Spanish, and Indian perspectives of our country and hear more about the men and women who have shaped our nation. Definitely a fun read.


    6. This is a good general American History book, and that's what we used it for. It begins at the very beginning with exploration, not native americans, and ends at the beginning of the 20th Century.



    7. Just started this and I already love it. Can't wait to read it to the kids. This is an excellent resource to accompany United States history studies. Engaging and entertaining. Thanks, Zelda.



    8. AMAZINGi LOOOOOOOVED THIS BOOK!!!!!its a great way to learn us history. I cant tell you how much I loved this book.Your just gonna have yourself.😋



    9. A good introduction to American history. Although I do thought that the author was repetitive in some points, it's not bad of a book at all, given that is was first published in 1917.


    10. This book goes into a lot of detail about our country's history, but it is heavily biased, so I find we need a lot of discussion with this one.
