Used Daniel Boone's Great Escape (USED)

product image
$9.00

While out hunting buffalo one day, the great Wild West explorer Daniel Boone was captured by powerful Shawnee warriors. Enraged by the settlers' murder of one of their own, the Shawnee chief decided to take Boone hostage as revenge. Even though he was eventually adopted by the Shawnee and grew accustomed to their way of life, Boone was constantly concerned about the safety of his family and friends. So when he heard that the Shawnee were preparing to attack the settlers in an attempt to regain their land, Boone decided to escape. Over four long days, he navigated the cruel landscape-crossing wide rivers, hiding in tall grass or trees, covering his footsteps at every turn, and never looking back but all the while knowing that the angry warriors were in hot pursuit.
This little-known episode from the life of one of our most famous Western heroes provides a balanced look at a difficult time in our history, while presenting a stunning act of courage that will keep young readers on the edge of their seats.

BENJAMIN WEST AND HIS CAT GRIMALKIN

product image
$7.99
Newbery Award-winning author Marguerite Henry's beloved novel about a boy who would do anything to paint is now available in a refreshed paperback edition.

Benjamin West was born with an extraordinary gift--the gift of creating paintings of people, animals, and landscapes so true to life they "took one's breath away." But Benjamin is part of a deeply religious Quaker family, and Quaker beliefs forbid the creation of images.

Because Benjamin's family didn't approve of his art, he had to make his own painting supplies. The local Native Americans taught him how to mix paints from earth, clay, and plants. And his cat, Grimalkin, sacrificed hair from his tail for Ben's brushes.

This classic story from Newbery Award-winning author Marguerite Henry features the original text with gorgeous new cover art.

By the early 1900s, nearly two million children were working in the United States. From the coal mines of Pennsylvania to the cotton mills of New England, children worked long hours every day under stunningly inhumane conditions.

Some strikes led by young people were successful; some were not. Some strike stories are shocking, some are heartbreaking, and many are inspiring -- but all are a testimony to the strength of mind and spirit of the children who helped build American industry.
