This book offers a fresh, multidisciplinary analysis of American history textbooks published in the first half of the nineteenth century, focusing on the emergence of an American "origins" narrative prevalent in these works as well as the methods employed to convey this tale to readers. The themes addressed in this work are timely in light of current controversies over American history curriculum, the role of textbooks, and the idea of a common American narrative.
