    I'm very fascinated by this story and looked forward to reading

    I'm very fascinated by this story and looked forward to reading these accounts, however, the nook version was missing large chunks of pages making reading it difficult to follow. There appears to be illustrations, however, those are missing also, with only the captions floating on a blank page. Very disappointed to have spent money on this nook book.
