Excerpt from The Picturesque Geographical Readers, Vol. 2 A thorough knowledge of one's country is a prime condition of intelligent citizenship. This knowledge should first come to one in school, under intelligent instruction and carefully arranged facts. Children are always interested in all that concerns the land they live in, and find greater delight when the matter is properly presented, in learning about its natural beauties, its productions, cities, people, than in studying about other countries. It has been the aim of the author of these Readers to collate and present in as attractive a manner as possible the striking facts of the United States. The amount and number of interesting facts collected made it necessary to issue these in three volumes convenient to handle and satisfactorily complete in information. Book III. Part I. takes up the New England and Middle States; Book IV. Part II. mainly describes the Southern, Middle, and Central States. Book V. Part III. describes the Rocky Mountains and Pacific Coast. The present volume is designed for children in the fifth and sixth years of school life, but it is well adapted for more advanced grades.
