Designed with reluctant readers in mind, these riveting 64-page softcover books offer short chapters on high-interest headlines. Each chapter is its own mini-book, which includes a timeline, key terms, and interesting facts. Fascinating black and white photographs keep the pages turning. A bibliography encourages further topical reading. What does it mean to be free? Would you fight a king for your freedom? Would you publicly protest what you believe to be unjust? Thousands have done just that! What can we learn from these courageous men and women? Read about people, their battles, and how they changed nations.
