    • Christopher Columbus : Across The Ocean Sea

      $21.99

      It was completely dark. The only things visible now were the two small beacon fires on Pinta and the Nia. Christopher was glad the two fires calmed his frightened crew. They calmed him, too. Their glow reminded him that the Santa Maria was not alone on the vast, uncharted Ocean Sea. The three ships would sail together into the unknown.

      Buoyant and determined, and having at last won the support of the king and queen of Spain, Christopher Columbus sailed west from Europe with three ships, confident he would reach the Indies by this new route and find the gold-laden civilization of the great khan.

      After four risky expeditions in which he explored the Caribbean and landed in South America, Columbus died without acclaim, never knowing he had reached what would soon be known as the New World. While Columbus himself never realized the magnitude of his discoveries, his voyages across the Ocean Sea would soon be recognized as a major turning point in world history. (1451-1506)

    • Benjamin Franklin : Live Wire

      $21.99

      As Ben experimented, people peppered him with questions about electricity. Distracted, Ben was still holding the ends of two bare wires when the other ends touched the Leyden jars. A massive charge knocked him to the ground. When he clambered to his feet, he had to admit that his guests appeared to have enjoyed watching him get electrocuted.

      Benjamin Franklin’s life never lacked excitement and intrigue. As a printer, writer, scientist, inventor, and American statesman, this spirited Philadelphia resident continually sought to improve himself and the world he lived in.

      A key founding father, Franklin was the only man to sign all five of the most important documents upon which the United States was built. He also served the colonies and young nation in England and France, where he was greatly admired and regarded as a genius. Today Benjamin Franklin’s wisdom and influence still reverberate through literature, science, politics, and society. (1706-1790)

    • Ernest Shackleton : Going South

      $21.99

      In the gloom of the ship’s oil lights, Ernest saw that the blizzard had broken up the ice plain. Huge, jagged ice slabs jutted into the air around the Endurance, jostling and scraping together. Great drifts of windblown snow had piled up behind them. Alone in the polar darkness, on a ship coated and locked in ice, the explorers waited.

      As adventurers from around the world raced to reach the South Pole and achieve other polar firsts in the early 1900s, outsider Ernest Shackleton and his motley expeditions would outshine even the British navy, becoming icons of the Heroic Age of Antarctic Exploration.

      Known for prizing loyalty, leadership, and skill without regard for rank or social class-and for bringing men back alive-Shackleton completed three death-defying Antarctic journeys. Called the Boss by his crew and Sir Ernest Henry Shackleton by the king, the Anglo-Irish explorer counted it all part of life’s grand adventure (1874-1922).

    • William Bradford : Plymouth’s Rock

      $21.99

      William shivered and his teeth chattered. Out on the water it was bone-chillingly cold. He could no longer feel his toes, and the spray splashing over the side of the shallop left a glaze of ice on his jacket. If the cold kept up much longer, William feared that the weather might accomplish what the Indians had tried to do-kill them all.

      Growing up in a small town in England, William Bradford lived during a time of upheaval and opportunity. Together with a group of Separatists, William escaped England to establish a new life in Holland and finally set out on the Mayflower on a perilous voyage across the Atlantic Ocean.

      The New World beckoned as a land of freedom and possibility. Yet wild waters, icy winters, Indian attacks, starvation, and treason threatened the European settlers’ very existence. Through William’s vision and steadfast leadership, the people of Plymouth Colony would endure, their future descendants forming the cornerstone of a great nation (1590-1657).

    • Alan Shepard : Higher And Faster

      $21.99

      Alan Shepard gripped the abort handle and braced his feet against the capsule floor. Five, Four, Three… Don’t screw up, he muttered. Two, One, Zero, Liftoff. Alan felt himself rising into the sky. He could scarcely believe it. The boy who grew up with a passion for flying was off on the ultimate flight — to space!

      Alan Shepard’s boyhood fascination with flight led him from constructing model airplanes in his grandfather’s basement to attaining national hero status in the race to space. Rooted in hard work and education, this pioneer’s dreams of flight came true as he became not only the first American launched into space but, later, one of the privileged few to walk on the moon.

      When he wasn’t soaring above the clouds, astronaut Alan Shepard used his expertise to benefit others, raising money to fuel the dreams of science students and guiding NASA missions. The achievements of this high flyer — America’s Lindbergh of Space — inspire all who dare to live their dreams (1923-1998).

    • Davy Crockett : Ever Westward

      $21.99

      Growing up in Greene County, Tennessee, Davy Crockett was educated through the toil of hard labor. Working as a farm hand and wagon driver, he learned about the people and the land of the West-and he was captivated. The untamed wilderness, the sound of wild animals, and the roar of the river would be his destiny.
      One of America’s best-known folk heroes, Crockett served as a frontiersman, a scout, a soldier, and a politician in the U.S. Congress. He died defending the Alamo, a steadfast citizen and heroic leader to the very end (1786-1836).

    • William Penn : Liberty And Justice For All

      $21.99

      With the favor William’s father enjoyed in Britain’s royal court, all William had to do was show himself to be a faithful royalist, and wealth and privilege would be his. Instead he chose to follow his conscience–to expulsion from university, disinheritance, imprisonment, and the threat of death.

      In a world where freedoms were subject to the whims of rulers, William Penn worked passionately for religious tolerance. When this Quaker reformer secured a land grant in America, he laid for Pennsylvania a foundation of liberty, justice, fairness, and tolerance that would later guide the drafting of the Constitution of the United States (1644-1718).

    • William Wilberforce : Take Up The Flight

      $21.99

      William wondered how anyone was supposed to battle slavery. After all, King George III and the Church of England both had large amounts of money invested in trade with the West Indies. And a large number of bishops sat in the House of Lords. William shook his head. This was a much bigger fight than he felt capable of taking on.

      For two hundred years, British slave ships plied the Middle Passage, taking African men, women, and children to their doom. Ending slavery in the mighty British Empire seemed like an impossible dream, but once William Wilberforce resolved to represent the abolitionists in Parliament, he would fight to the bitter end-for nearly half a century-to achieve that goal.

      Together with a community of dynamic reformers, Wilberforce struggled to rid his nation of evil and to give dignity and freedom to all people-slave and slave trader, poor and powerful. His example continues to inspire others to use their gifts and influence to do good against the odds. (1759-1833).

    • Theodore Roosevelt : An American Original

      $21.99

      Bleeding, Teddy stood to address the crowd. Friends, I should ask you to be as quiet as possible. I don’t know if you fully understand that I have been shot, but it takes more than that to kill a bull moose.

      Determined to make a difference and with an insatiable curiosity, love of adventure, and hunger for justice, Theodore Roosevelt exemplified a life directed by principle and not by circumstance.

      Overcoming severe asthma and a weak heart set young Teddy on a life course against the odds. Whether rooting out government and corporate corruption, leading the legendary Rough Riders in war, establishing wildlife refuges and national parks, ranching in the Badlands of Dakota, writing books, or exploring dangerous uncharted land, the twenty-sixth president of the United States embraced every challenge and made his life count.

    • Billy Graham : Americas Pastor

      $21.99

      Billy boarded the train to Minneapolis. He had come to Los Angeles months before as a small-time preacher. Now he was leaving as one of the most recognized Christians in the country. It was not what Billy had sought; he’d just been open for God to use. Billy wondered if this would be the peak of his fame or if something bigger was about to happen.

      The oldest son of dairy farmers from Charlotte, North Carolina, young Billy Graham attended evangelical revival meetings that inspired him for the rest of his life. As an ordained minister, he rose to prominence and would subsequently preach the Christian message to over 200 million people in 185 countries.

      Graham championed civil rights, befriended US politicians and presidents, and traveled the world to places no one else dared to go. His life and ministry have shaped the spiritual life of America and offers hope for the future – inspiring new generations of leaders willing to serve with courage, integrity, and vision. Graham’s message continues to ring true today:There is opportunity for repentance, and for a great light to shine — the light of the gospel of Jesus Christ (1918-).

    • Milton Hershey : More Than Chocolate

      $21.99

      We’ve done more than our share to see you right, but you’re a Hershey, a true son of a dreamer, Milton’s Uncle Abraham said. You’ll never stick with anything long enough to make it work for you. Milton gulped. He’d already suspected that his relatives had given up on him succeeding as a candy maker, but the words still stung.

      When Milton Hershey’s famous Hershey Bars debuted in 1905, few people knew of the hard work, dedication, and sacrifice preceding the triumph. Debt, lack of support, and fatigue had been constant companions for the famous chocolatier and philanthropist – a man with a fourth-grade education.

      Despite comparisons to his wandering father, Milton never gave up. Learning from his mistakes, he spent a lifetime creating sweet things to eat – first caramel, then chocolate. As his company soared, Milton used his wealth to care for others, founding a town for Hershey workers, a school for children in need, and a foundation dedicated to education, culture, and health care (1857-1945).

      $21.99

      Running Time: 5:34 Hours
      When the water supply canteens ran dry again, Louie began to doubt they’d survive. He thought back to when he first arrived in Hawaii and Eddie Rickenbacker, the World War I ace pilot, and his crew had just been rescued. Rickenbacker and his crew set a new record of twenty-one days drifting on a raft much like the one Louie was in. When the group was picked up, the men were dehydrated, hallucinating and near death. Louie was sure twenty-one days on a life raft represented the outer limits of human survival.

      As an Olympic runner, a bombardier in the Army Air Corps, and a prisoner of war, Louis Zamperini was determined to thrive and survive. Never backing down from a challenge, Louie lived a life of adventure while modeling hope and forgiveness to a generation.

      A magnet for trouble as a boy, Louis Zamperini determined to create a new path for himself. Nicknamed the Torrance Tornado, he set national records and traveled to the 1936 Summer Olympics in Berlin. His resolve as a runner was matched by his will to survive a plane crash, weeks adrift at sea, and years in a prison camp. This American hero encouraged countless others to have faith and to persevere through trials, revealing that no life is beyond redemption. (1917-2014)

      $21.99

      Ben visited Maranda’s family the night before the young girl’s brain surgery. He spoke to her parents, outlining the risks one last time. The surgery should take about five hours. There’s a strong likelihood that Maranda could bleed uncontrollably and die right there. Or she could survive and be paralyzed and never speak again. There is no way to know what will happen.

      As a child growing up in Detroit, Ben Carson has a dream of becoming a physician, a dream that rose out of struggles with poverty, racism, and poor grades. As Ben persevered and strove for academic excellence, his life became one of compassion and service.

      $21.99

      The mainsail cracked above them in the ferocious wind as a group of red-faced men descended on John. You have brought a curse on us. Overboard with you, one of the men yelled. A chorus of cheers went up. It was the last sound John heard before he was dumped over the side of the ship and engulfed by the dark, roiling ocean.

      Thrown overboard, enslaved by the Turks, captured by pirates, rescued by a princess–the story of Englishman John Smith (1580-1631) would seem unbelievable were it fiction. Young John first sought adventure in Europe, traveling as far as Russia and distinguishing himself in the wars that raged across the Old World.

      But John Smith’s real passion was for the New World, and in 1607 he sailed to North America with the men who would establish the first lasting British settlement-Jamestown. There he fought level-headedly for the policies that would enable the fragile community to survive starvation, disease, and deadly attacks to become a foothold in the New World.

    • Harriet Tubman : Freedombound

      $21.99

      The pounding of horses’ hooves shattered the night’s silence. Harriet froze in the shadow of a tree and peered out into the darkness. She barely dared to breathe as three slave catchers came to a halt only a few feet from her hiding place. Had she escaped from danger so many times only to lose her hope of freedom now?

      At age six the sharp bite of a whip taught Harriet Tubman what is meant to be a slave. The other slaves scoffed when Harriet resolved to escape north someday. Little did they know that this girl would one day lead hundreds of slaves to freedom on the Underground Railroad.

      Even huge rewards for her capture – dead or alive – did not stop Harriet from risking her life again and again in the fight for liberty as the nation spiraled into the Civil War. Whether running from slave hunters, advising generals, or improving conditions in war hospitals, remarkable Harriet Tubman would not be satisfied until every person could experience true freedom.

    • Daniel Boone : Frontiersman

      $21.99

      Chief Blackfish handed Daniel a belt. The beads represent three paths, he said. The red path is the warpath. The white path is the path we can walk together: The black path is death – the path you will walk if you do not surrender. Daniel knew that the settlers would not give up the fort. Could he help them escape the path of death?

      In search of open spaces and land to call his own, Daniel Boone fearlessly led a band of brave settlers into the bountiful Kentucky wilderness. Daniel’s expert hunting ability, incredible outdoor survival skills, and courage under fire helped his companions stay alive in a dangerous and unknown land despite threatening encounters with soldiers, Indians, and even other settlers.

      From the childish pranks of his youth to his daring feats as a pioneer, Daniel Boone’s lifelong quest for adventure made him a spirited leader. His heroic accomplishments on the frontier made him an American legend for all time (1734-1820).

    • Abraham Lincoln : A New Birth Of Freedom (Unabridged)

      $21.99

      From the flag-draped presidential box, Abraham Lincoln watched the popular comedy on stage at the Ford Theater. As he laughed at a funny line–Bang! A single shot rang out from a small derringer, the sound barely audible over the laughter of the crowd. Abe slumped forward, blood running from behind his left ear.

      When President Lincoln died the next morning, the United States mourned as it had never mourned before. An assassin had killed the man who had led Americans through the bloody turmoil of the Civil War with an unswerving commitment to rebuilding a strong and united country.

      Abe Lincoln had never set his sights on becoming president; after all, he’d grown up in a log cabin on the frontier and had hardly any formal schooling. But as the question of slavery threatened to destroy the United Sates, this self-taught lawyer with a sharp mind and passion for justice found himself at the center of the greatest debate the nation had ever faced.

      Born in 1800, William Holmes McGuffey had a remarkable ability to memorize, and could commit to mind entire books of the Bible. After becoming a teacher at the age of 14, classroom size was just one of several challenges faced by McGuffey.

The series consisted of stories, poems, essays and speeches and it is estimated that at least 120 million copies of McGuffey’s Readers were sold between 1836 and 1960, placing its sales in a category with the Bible and Webster’s Dictionary.

      Since 1961 they have continued to sell at a rate of some 30,000 copies a year. No other textbook bearing a single person’s name has come close to that mark.

      Laura stared at the black cloud blotting out the sun. The cloud was unlike anything she had ever seen. As it got closer, it made a strange noise, like hail pelting the ground.
