OpenStax U.S. History Textbook

I have had a number of faculty ask about the Open Educational Resource (OER) textbook I am using for my history classes.  The text is called U.S. History, by P. Scott Corbett, Volker Janssen, and John M. Lund.  It is published by OpenStax.


I provide the text in the course as a PDF file.  The text is available online in an ADA compliant version for free as well.  If the students want a traditional textbook, they can order it from the OpenStax store on Amazon here:
