This new series of nonfiction readers will grab a student's interest from the very first page! 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. Read about some of history's most exciting captures! Tragedy or triumph? It all depends on who-or what-is captured. The captive might be a runaway slave during the Civil War, or a war criminal caught long after World War II. Or maybe the captive is a rare giant squid from the ocean's depths.
