Hispanic American History – Library Media Connection

Hispanic American History – School Library Journal, Series Made Simple

Ollhoff’s clearly written texts trace Hispanic history from the Paleo-Indians, conquistadors, and African forbears. These books also discuss the rise and decline of Spanish colonial North America; the effects of Mexican independence; discrimination and Hispanic civil rights; and the growing political, economic, and social influence of the Hispanic population. The layout is attractive with full-page illustrations and photos, many with text superimposed on the images. This series will help students understand the scope and significance of Hispanic history.
