From a school librarian in Idaho

Here are five popular textbook publishers:

MacMillan/McGraw-Hill
Prentice-Hall
Holt, Rinehart & Winston
Houghton-Mifflin
McDougal-Littel

I know that McDougal-Little has a web site:
http://www.classzone.com
to which our teachers and students have password-only access. They can use the entire textbook there.

I went there and navigated to this page:
http://www.classzone.com/eservices/demo/dsp_movie_demo.cfm?movieType=eeditions&sfd=yes

From there, I was able to access sample textbook pages. For example, here is the URL for a page from a World Cultures and Geography text:
http://ebooksdemo.classwell.com/ebooks/navigateBook.clg?sectionType=unit&navigation=1&prevNext=1&curSeq=5&curDispPage=159&xpqData=%2Fcontent%5B%40id%3D%278784683C-728A-82E7-016D-FA450549E728%27%5D

If you go to http://www.boiseschools.org/
And click on Curriculum, you can navigate to the social studies curriculum for each grade level. The textbooks for each curriculum are listed there.
