Excellent book for my adult students, made all the more useful by the download of readings from the various stories. The fact that they were based on real people everyone had heard of added to the intrigue and sparked discussion and dissent. Just what this teacher was hoping for. Wish there were more collections of short stories in the Paper Planes series for next year--with the same students as before!
I devoured this book! The historic figures it brought to life, the style, the author's studied approach, the development. Now I'd love to meet Fanny Moyle--whom I hear summers not far from where I live.
