Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For students ages eight to fourteen, the MY AMERICAN JOURNEY

series presents a true history of the United States with a cleverly helpful

dose of fiction.

Each of the ten books recounts highlights from the life of a political,

creative, or cultural legend. But to engage a student’s interest from

page one, a fictional narrator—usually a school-age person who somehow

knew the main hero—tells the story with youthful vigor.

Adding to Deborah Hedstrom-Page’s unique lessons are illustrations

from Sergio Martinez (Max Lucado’s You Are Special). Each book also

contains study questions and activity pages for every chapter.

Charles Goodnight (1836–1929) was a trailblazing cattle rancher in

the American West and inventor of the chuckwagon, which carried

food and cooking equipment. His story as retold here teaches readers

about the core value of honesty—telling it like it is.

Synopsis:

My American Journey series offers easy-to-read illustrated history books for grade-schoolers about inventors, social leaders, explorers, and government officials.
