Orinda, CA, November 10, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- MiraVista Press announces their new book “Becoming America: The Making of an Extraordinary Nation.” Scheduled for release on Veterans Day, November 11, the book is a compendium of American history, civics, and culture. It covers the events and people that shaped this great nation. Dismayed at studies indicating how ignorant the average American was about their country, the author put together a source book to combat this ignorance. A concise illustrated history timeline complements stories of American heroes and details of how the government works. Important speeches and documents are included so you can actually read the “Declaration of Independence” and the “Constitution,” or famous speeches from the past 240 years.
Americans don’t know their country
It is more important than ever to be an informed citizen and voter. And if the reader is not an American now, “Becoming America” will help them understand what it means to be an American. The book celebrates the immigrant story that helped create the country, but emphasizes the importance of a shared national identity and common culture.
A challenge to citizens and book clubs across the country
America needs an informed and active citizenry as never before. “Becoming America” has all the information needed to pass the official U.S. Citizenship Test and also contains the test itself. Book club members and citizens across the country are challenged to use the book and prove they can pass the same test that naturalized citizens must pass to become a citizen. This is important.
