“Those children must get rid of that animal. Our wild brother, the wolf, does not change his nature. Can’t you see that the animal is part wolf?” the medicine man warned Cub’s parents. But Cub knew his pet better than anyone. He knew that even though Wolf was half wild, he was not a dangerous animal, and would never turn on those he loved. Cub’s parents had a different idea, however. They trusted the old medicine man’s intuition, and besides, food was scarce—too scarce to have a dog to feed around the house. Paperback.
Against the odds, women sought out pilots who would give them flying lessons. Many, like Harriet Quimby, Matilde Moisant, Amelia Earhart, Emily Warner, Sally Ride, and others, demonstrated that women have the skills, courage, and determination to fly. Hardcover.
The Civil War is rarely shown through a young southern woman’s perspective. Many of these women were displaced from their homes and lived their lives on the run from Northern shellfire. Sarah Morgan was one of those women. She was only 20 years old when the North took over her hometown of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, but she wrote about her experiences in her diaries with insight and clarity well beyond her years. Paperback.
How do you know if you’re a dinosaur? Well, if you’re bigger than a school bus, can eat everything in the fridge in one bite, and have dozens of razor-sharp teeth, it’s possible you may just be a dinosaur! This playful look at these ancient animals contains fun facts about sail-backed Spinosaurus, horned Triceratops, spiky Stegosaurus, and more. Tiny T. rex everywhere will enjoy the earth-quaking, tooth-chomping antics of these unique beasts.
The Civil War was a war unlike any other. The bravery and strength the soldiers showed, the determination in the direst of circumstances, and the fearlessness when met with challenges never dreamed of set these dark years apart. So much has been recorded about the War Between the States from the bloody battles to the steadfast generals. However, there were others present who are often forgotten: young people who were faced with a fate they never thought they would meet when their lives were taken out of their control.
