Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte is one of the most loved English Classics of all time. Mystery, hardship - and love. Jane comes from nothing but she desires everything life can offer her. And when she finds work as a governess in a mysterious mansion, it seems she has finally met her match with the darkly fascinating Mr Rochester. But Thornfield Hall contains a shameful secret - one that could keep Jane and Rochester apart forever. Can she choose between what is right, and her one chance of happiness? ***One of the most widely-read and enjoyed of all Victorian novels, and one of the greatest tales of a woman's struggle for dignity and love in a hard time*** Charlotte Bronte (1816-55) is the sister of Anne Bronte and Emily Bronte, author of Wuthering Heights. Jane Eyre appeared in 1847 and was followed by Shirley (1848) and Vilette (1853). In 1854 Charlotte Bronte married her father's curate, Arthur Bell Nicholls. She died during her pregnancy on March 31, 1855 in Haworth, Yorkshire.

This is the third of thirty-one readers used in the Veritas Press Phonics Museum program. In 1620 the Mayflower, with its 102 passengers, sailed from England to North America. These Pilgrims included a group called the Separatists who believed that they should separate from the Church of England. Earlier they had moved to Holland to avoid persecution However, life in the Netherlands did not prove to be any less difficult. In October they set sail for an uncharted land to establish a new home. The Mayflower was an old merchant ship that had been converted to carry settlers to North America. Living conditions were terrible and each passenger had the living space equivalent to that of a single bed. Throughout the journey illness, hunger, death and accidents disheartened the travelers. Yet, the godly men on board continually relied upon God's providential care to encourage them. After a 65-day voyage across the Atlantic, the wearied group sighted land and dropped anchor near Cape Cod. They readily gave thanks to God for His divine protection and even named the site Provincetown. Before the Pilgrims disembarked the ship, the Mayflower Compact was signed by 41 of the 44 men who agreed to live within certain laws. After five weeks of exploration the band led by Capt. Miles Standish and the newly elected governor, William Bradford, founded the small settlement called Plymouth Plantation. Plymouth was the first successful colony in New England and became the origin of the United States.

USED IF YOU LIVED WHEN THERE WAS SLAVERY IN AMERICA (USED)

ISBN/SKU: 
0439567068U
This 24th book in the highly-regarded series explores an important aspect of America history often overlooked in textbooks.

It is hard to imagine that, once, a person in America could be "owned" by another person. But from the time the colonies were settled in the 1600s until the end of the Civil War in 1865, millions of black people were bought and sold like goods.
Where did the slaves come from? Where did they live when they were brought to this country? What kind of work did they do? With compassion and respect for the enslaved, this book answers questions children might have about this dismal era in American history.

Used The Great Pyramid (USED)

$10.00
ISBN/SKU: 
0965049310U

Nearly 50 stories high, The Great Pyramid was built more than 4,500 years ago, made from over 2,300,00 giant stone blocks and constructed by primitive farmers. Some believe aliens from outer space created it, but the true story of the Great Pyramid is even more fascinating than the speculation.

A nation of farmers living on the green edge of a harsh desert had a king who was a god in life and death. Tens of thousands of farmers left their homes each year to chisel hard stone without iron tools and move 10-ton blocks up steep grades without the use of a wheel.

Elizabeth Mann captures the marvel that is The Great Pyramid and the people that built it. She tells the story of a world that is strange, distant and yet poignantly human. In the process, The Great Pyramid and the Old Kingdom become more than dusty remnants of an ancient civilization; they come alive.

Laura Lo Turco's shimmering paintings are a perfect visual complement to the text, combining reality with a sense of awe and mystery. Photographs of haunting 4,500-year old walls and statues let Ancient Egypt remind the young reader that these people were indeed real.

Wonders of the World series

The winner of numerous awards, this series is renowned for Elizabeth Mann's ability to convey adventure and excitement while revealing technical information in engaging and easily understood language. The illustrations are lavishly realistic and accurate in detail but do not ignore the human element. Outstanding in the genre, these books are sure to bring even the most indifferent young reader into the worlds of history, geography, and architecture.

"One of the ten best non-fiction series for young readers."
