Every month Heritage History selects one book from its online collection to give away as a free sample, so that people will see how easy it is use our e-books. Our library contains over 400 books, so it will take a while to go through them all and we’re hoping that some of you history fans will get impatient and just buy one of our collections. But in the meantime, we’ll be featuring a new book every month, selected from one of our Classical Curriculum CDs.
America First by Lawton Evans
This month, we’re giving away America First one of our favorites from the Early America collection. This is not a history textbook, but a collection of one-hundred, easy-to-read, entertaining stories from American history that can be read one-at-a-time, and enjoyed by the whole family. Like many books written for young Americans of yesteryear, it communicates the excitement and adventure of the explorers, pioneers, and patriots of Early America.
This group of stories provides character sketches of dozens of early American heroes and heroines. It does not provide chronological or comprehensive account, and does not deal with complicated issues relating to civics or liberties, but instead focuses on engaging stories and inspires students to learn more. It is a wonderful introduction to American History for young, imaginative students, and entertaining for adults as well.
This book is available as a free download from Sept 1 to Oct 1 2012, and if you think your friends would enjoy it, then by all means, pass on this information. After October, America First can still be downloaded for only $2, and it can also be found on our Early America Classical Library.
