Key to the successful teaching and learning of history is its personalization. In presenting documents that help Ohio's rich history come alive in the minds of its readers, this book has purposely sought to provide eyewitness, first-person narratives that will make the reader want to turn the page and keep on reading.

The Documentary Heritage of Ohio is an awesome 448-page heavyweight hardback.…(T)his book is also a smorgasbord of lively tidbits and pithy excerpts from diaries, speeches, laws and reports.”
