From before its earliest settlement to the vibrant metropolis that exists today, the island of Manhattan has always been a place of struggle, growth, and radical transformation. In this informative history for readers 9 to 12, Jennifer Thermes shows how humans, history, and natural events have shaped this tiny sliver of land, where early settlers' desire for beaver pelts began an era of rapid change for the island. While discussing immigration, the slave trade, and the people who built New York City, Thermes uses watercolor, ink, and colored pencil to capture life in the Big Apple through the years, basing some of her very appealing images on archival maps.
