    Imagine getting a glimpse into life 200 years ago, back when most of America was unsettled wilderness. Discovered in an old house was the diary Noah Blake, and it affords us this opportunity. Most of this well-researched book is fiction, written as the author believes the conversation went, decorated with beautiful drawings of various implements and scenes. A good deal of the book talks about various aspects of the pioneers life, from the tools they used to the scarcity of glass to the difficulty of simply raising a bridge. Scattered throughout the text are excerpts from his diary, enabling you to see from his eyes the progression of the years, the building of the bridge, and falling in love with a neighbor girl. Journal entries are scarcer then I would like, but the author more than makes up with his attention to detail and his vivid reconstruction of sentences and events. ~ Mark

    Perhaps this text was part of my elementary education. The timing fits and it would explain why the events lovingly memorialized in this publication are still firmly planted in my memory. First published in 1955 and now republished by Beautiful Feet, utilizing the historical accuracy and storytelling ability of Earl Schenck Miers and the amazing illustrations of James Daugherty (full-color, inked drawings), this book takes the reader through tales of adventure, heroism, and patriotism. From Leifs Viking boat explorations of the northeastern coastline to the atom bombs close to the second World War, you will read about everything in between explorers, founders, soldiers, adventurers, settlers, inventors, statesmen, educators, and many more in the fifty stories that make up this 315 pg, paperback book. A worthy addition to your home library or ideal for any literature-based history course or unit study, the author himself sums up its scope: everywhere signs of the greatness of God. It is indeed the one truth in which we all believe. It is indeed our richest heritage. ~ Janice

    A masterful account of this most amazing American. A biography of Franklin written with a sweep and verve worthy of its subject and brilliantly illustrated. The New Yorker. This superb biography of the printer, statesman, author, reformer, inventor and ambassador reveals a Benjamin Franklin who in his time lived more lives than many men together. The brilliance and inexhaustible ingenuity of mind that fascinated his contemporaries continues to charm us now in Daughertys work of perhaps Americas most distinguished citizen and most interesting human being. Here is an understanding of the Poor Richard that underlay all Franklins life, through honors and distinctions, foreign and domestic, saying with shrewd Yankee economy: Well done is better than well said. As with all of Daughertys books, his illustrations of two- and three-color compliment the meaty text for the enjoyment of all. (description by Beautiful Feet)

    There are some events in history that could be forgotten because theyre simply unimportant and have no bearing on the past, our present, and our future. However, there are other events in history that should never be forgotten. One of those is WWII and the cause of itAdolf Hitler. Understanding the life and psyche of Hitler is paramount to our freedom in our society so that another Hitler should ever rise again. Albert Marrin has captured the life of Hitler from his early years in Austria to his eventual defeat and death in Berlin. Hitler traces the life and times of this man in an easy-to-read format, giving the reader the most pertinent information. As citizens of a free world, it is vital that we educate ourselves about the thoughts and lives of the tyrants in history so that another Hitler will not come to power. 249 pgs, pb. John

    The story of the Vietnam War is a complicated one, and one that I still find a little confusing myself. Author Albert Marrin must have found it equally so. As he writes in his introduction, although he lived during the war and had actively followed the news at the time, he ended up spending months - even years - researching for this book, reading hundreds of books, articles, and personal accounts of the war, as well as interviewing men who had served during the war. And I believe that the results of so much research were well worth the effort and go a long way in helping readers better understand the conflict itself, as well as the bigger picture. To help readers get a feel for the country and its people, Marrin starts his story back at the early settlement of Vietnam, and the long-continuing struggle of the Vietnamese to remain independent from their Northern neighbor, China. He continues his story with the French colonization of the area, the spread of Communism into Vietnam, the "splitting" of Vietnam into two general parts, and all the developments in between and beyond that attributed to the buildup of the war. Marrins writing is absorbing, full of details that make it seem as if readers were there, and is almost hard to put down. Occasional maps and black-and-white photos add visual interest as well. Overall, a thorough and well-written account of what is often thought of as a somewhat "uncomfortable" topic in our history. - Jess

    I love reading about the guiding hand of God in our nations history. I find the story fascinating and the men of faith and conviction inspiring. This book is written in the same vein. Based on the assumption that all of history is providential, we learn how Gods presence was evident at our nations founding in the hearts and minds of the men who fought for independence and framed the Constitution. The book opens with an overview of geography and ancient history before moving to American history. A portion of the book is devoted to the history of education in our country. Later chapters focus on our decline as a nation, and a reconstructionist view is presented for bringing our nation back to what the authors believe God wants it to be. This book is used as a teacher resource for the Beautiful Feet American history studies. Lots of pictures and illustrations. 300 pgs.

    If you want to dig a little deeper into source documents referred to in Americas Providential History, get the accompanying Documentary Sourcebook. Inspiring in its own right, this book includes speeches and documents that portray the Christian influence in the founding and history of our nation. A sampling of the offerings in this book includes excerpts from Columbus Journal of His First Voyage, Fast and Thanksgiving Days of New England, Chaplains and Clergy of the Revolution, Virginia Statute of Religious Freedom, Washingtons Farewell Address, excerpts from Democracy in America, the 1853 report from the Senate Judiciary Committee about the importance of congressional chaplains. 136 pg, pb.

    For ease of tying these two books together, consider the Teachers Guide, which includes: APH chapter outlines; study questions for each of the 18 chapters, with answers; three exams, with answers; and a list of books for further study. 102 pgs, pb. ~ Bob

    This book by Caroline Dale Snedeker tells about an ancient Roman girl named Lavinia who is banished to Britain with the rest of her family. Lavinia is enchanted by the island even though her family sees it as a barbaric place. The book contrasts the cultures of the early British Christians with the pagan Roman aristocracy, and that setting makes a good background for Lavinias story. Lavinia eventually converts to Christianity and falls in love with a Christian man, but she must deal with her pagan family and her fathers plans for her marriage. A dramatic and entertaining novel, this book offers a great look at Roman life in Gaul and Britian. 210 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel
