A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:
So very interesting! Not only the tidbits, facts and information, but the pictures are so well placed and incorporated that the entire book just flows effortlessly. Either read straight through, in sections or even brief passages, this book held my attention. From Harriet Tubman to the Oneida Community to the Chery Valley Massacre, many people, legends and events are included. Definitely worth the read, the history lessons learned and revisited are priceless.
