    Same fast-paced, Dave Stotts-narrated adventures as the above series, but instead of places, this series takes on a tour of the Founding Fathers – er, Founding People (giving Abigail Adams her rightful place as a person of influence in the founding of our country). The first episode examines the Adams family – John, Abigail, and John Quincy; the second a collection of Benjamins – Franklin, Banneker, and Dr. Rush; and the third – without benefit of either a first or last name in common – familiar Americans George Washington and Noah Webster and the not-so-familiar Haym Salomon. Each biographical tour includes family homes, letters/diaries, and accomplishments.

    Strap into the Hummer! Dave Stotts is off on another fast-paced history tour, this time on some of America's founding fathers. Nothing dull about these lessons, nine in all, as Dave entertains us about Faith and Freedom (background leading up to the American Revolution), Benjamin Franklin, Dr. Benjamin Rush, George Washington, Benjamin Banneker, Haym Solomon, Abigail Adams, Noah Webster, and John Quincy Adams. This program is based on the work of Christian historian David Barton, and includes an interesting text and the even more interesting DVD featuring Dave Stotts. The lesson in the book includes historical information, interesting facts, discussion questions, and ideas for lengthier projects. Wrap up each lesson by watching the engaging 10-minute video. And remember: "Work as if you were to live a hundred years; pray as if you were to die tomorrow." – Benjamin Franklin.

    Viewed as individual fragments, each one of Louie Zamperini’s feats would astound and inspire: Olympic runner, WWII POW survivor, philanthropist, 70-year old skateboarder, to name a few. Weaving these accolades with his driving determination to hope, endure, survive—and perhaps most importantly—forgive his captors, Louie’s life defies description. Though he would say his encounter with Christ was his most notable, readers will be permanently altered by this man’s whole life—proof that one person can indeed impact the world. Includes photos, an epilogue, copious notes and index, 8 pages of author interview and 23 higher-order discussion questions. A literature selection for Beautiful Feet’s Modern US and World History. Parents may want to preview content or select one of our younger reader biographies of this man. 500 pgs, pb. ~ Ruth

    When young Galwyn, a mistreated apprentice on his uncle's ship, meets the Briton Lord Artos, he is filled with admiration for this man who will someday become King Arthur. Thanks to Galwyn's knack for languages and knowledge of horses, he is invited to join the warriors on their quest to purchase warhorses and transport them back to Britain. When the voyage ends, Galwyn has succeeded in earning Artos' favor – and a job on his estate continuing to care for the horses. At home, Artos attempts to unify the Britons against the Saxons while Galwyn and the other horse hands breed, train, and care for the growing herd. Even in the safety of Artos' estate, threats to the horses lurk in the form of horse thieves, bandits, and lameness caused by the moisture from the soggy terrain. Artos' strategy to drive out the Saxons depends on these horses; if they lose the horses, Galwyn will have not only disappointed Artos, but will have failed his country as well! Horse-lovers are sure to especially enjoy this Arthurian adventure! 218 pgs, pb. By Anne McCaffrey. - Jess
