Trinity Valley Community College Palestine history and government instructor Mike Young recently had his history textbook Growth of the American Republic published. The 506-page text was issued by Kendall Hunt Publishing of Dubuque, IA.

“I was frustrated that students would never read the assigned government textbook, so I decided to write my own,” said Young. “Knowing that students today will not sit down and read a 50 or 60 page chapter, I decided to make each chapter short, easy to read, with clear explanations of the essential concepts.
