Daily Life America: Focus on the US

Daily Life America explores the activities and influences of our landscape and culture over time primarily here in America. The resource covers topics such as world war II "victory gardens" and the impact on daily life. The cultural influences such as Germans bringing the tradition of Oktoberfests or natives from Holland celebrating tulip festivals and such practical things as wooden shoes for dirty farm work. We have had Daily Life Online for a while, but the titles from Daily Life America adds to our list of resources greatly. If you want to search both simultaneously, use Daily Life Online.
