Full Description


< I>The Way People Live< /I> series focuses on people in various cultures and historical circumstances. Some of these groups are more current, like citizens living on an Israeli kibbutz; others no longer exist, such as Northerners during the Civil War. By emphasizing daily routines, personal struggles and triumphs, the authors portray life in a realistic manner, as well as reveal stereotypes and prejudices that may be associated with some of these diverse groups of people. Combining numerous primary source quotations, fascinating photographs, and fresh you-are-there narrative, < I>The Way People Live< /I> brings readers into the lives of people both past and present. Even the most reluctant readers will find it hard to resist these appealing books.
