The aim of this section is to give you a selection of books and films to read/watch in preparation for teaching or studying C19th America. For a full list of other recommendations see the OCR Teacher Guide pages 21 and 22 HERE. Click the images to go to a product page. Do get in touch if you have any other recommendations.
For those off you wanting to read beyond the extracts we will be focussing on in lessons, here is a general bibliography for the American West. You can get most of these books either for free from the library or for a small fee from Abe Books. Please do not feel it is necessary to buy any however. It might be worth just choosing a few to dip into to get a broader feel for a fascinating topic. If you want some specific recommendations see myself or Miss Devey!!
