Why Snapshots? The average history textbook is a wealth of information, but often includes almost too much for quick study leaving students to sieve through lines of text to understand the foundation of the issue at hand. The goal of our Snapshots series is to give students key information in bite-sized and manageable pieces without losing the trivia element that makes history fun. This book highlights the beginning of time and is Volume 2 in the History Snapshot series.
