What People Are Saying ...
"This book will challenge everything that history books have taught us about the 'founding years' in the American colonies. Young adult readers will make text to text and text to world connections as they journey four hundred years in history where horrific truths are revealed. Forefathers & Founding Fathers is an amazing historical account that defies everything we know about the beginning of America, including our Thanksgiving feast with the pilgrims. It leaves the reader wondering what else we are in the dark about."
— Marla Conn, founder, Readability Inc.

— Mark Victor Hansen, author of Chicken Soup for the Soul
