The Early Frontier Adventures of George Washington
This book shows how the "Father of Our Country" developed as a great leader and became one of America's first true frontiersmen.
See America's first president as you never have in this surprising and inspiring portrait from Newbery Honor Medalist Sterling North. Meet Washington the frontiersman--a young man who never liked school but who felt at home exploring the far boundaries of colonial America.
Follow Washington on his first surveying trip into the wilds of Virginia at age sixteen; on a sailing voyage to Barbados; and on a mission with the British redcoats into western Pennsylvania, where he narrowly escaped a bloody massacre.
North takes us back to a turbulent, violent, and thrilling era in American history, when both a country and the man who led it struggled to define themselves.
About the Landmark series:
For over half a century, Landmark books have been an important part of home libraries. Jam-packed with exciting stories and adventures, the Landmark series is known as the first historical series for kids. Teaching parents continue to trust the Landmark name to engage their children with accurate information on well-known people and interesting periods in American history. The variety of subjects; action-filled, story-like narratives; large and clear print; and reasonable prices make the Landmark series an excellent and enjoyable way to learn more about history.
Extremely popular in the 1950s and 1960s, while these are all secular titles the fact that they were written as many as fifty years ago ensures their wholesomeness, as much as any book pertaining to the lives of mortal men can be wholesome.
Sterling North wrote several children's books, including Rascal, which received the Newbery Honor award in 1964 and later became a Disney film. North died in 1974 in Morristown, New Jersey.
