Our Kentucky: A Study of the Bluegrass State / Edition 2 available in Hardcover
- Pub. Date:
- University Press of Kentucky
State historian James C. Klotter, together with a teachers' advisory group, has gathered nineteen authorities on the Commonwealth, each of whom has written a section in his or her area of expertise. The topics range widely, from architecture to women's rights, from Native Americans to Kentucky's future and much in between. Well-respected authors from various disciplines including geography, history, literature, religion, journalism, education, and political science have crafted concise and stimulating chapters that help explain the state's past, present, and future.
Designed for use in the Kentucky Studies high school elective course, the book has been praised for covering so many aspects of Kentucky life and for bringing together such a wide array of writers. A special feature is the inclusion of seventeen award-winning essays written by high school students. These brief "sidebars" demonstrate the level of work that can be done by today's young Kentuckians. The combination of essays by students, chapters by experts, and a generous selection of photographs and original documents results in a book that will inform and delight all Kentucky readers.
