Stories of Historical Figures Written for ages 6 to 8.
Americas heroes come to life for children, thanks to this 1895 classic by Edward Eggleston.
Edward Eggleston captures Americas heritage in the best way possible for children: with imaginative stories about great Americans. Stories written at a time when Americans wanted their children to be proud of their country. Stories that bring the people and the times to life. Stories designed to give hours of reading pleasure.
52 charming sketches from the original book, first published back in 1895, perfectly complement the text. The 52 chapters here include stories about war heroes, statesmen, explorers, inventors, writers, artists, scientists, and just plain ordinary people who made a difference. The lives of these men and women wonderfully illustrate the virtues children need to learn. Virtues like courage, unselfishness, honesty, patience, ingenuity, kindness, independence, and perseverance.
You get stories about great American men and women like...
Daniel Boone Francis Scott Key George Washington Eliza Lucas Marquette Benjamin West George Rogers Clark Daniel Webster William Penn Louisa May Alcott Charles Goodyear Kit Carson Thomas Jefferson Benezet Robert Fulton Henry Wadsworth Longfellow Thomas Smith Horace Greeley Lewis and Clark General Marion Benjamen Franklin plus over a dozen more!
For children and even for adults Edward Egglestons writing nourishes a love and appreciation of America and the people who made it great. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
