Overview

For students ages eight to fourteen, the MY AMERICAN JOURNEY
series presents a true history of the United States with a cleverly helpful
dose of fiction.

Each of the ten books recounts highlights from the life of a political,
creative, or cultural legend. But to engage a student’s interest from
page one, a fictional narrator—usually a school-age person who somehow
knew the main hero—tells the story with youthful vigor.

Adding to Deborah Hedstrom-Page’s unique lessons are illustrations
from Sergio Martinez (Max Lucado’s You Are Special). Each book also
contains study questions and activity pages for every chapter.

Charles Goodnight (1836–1929) was a trailblazing cattle rancher in
the American West and inventor of the chuckwagon, which carried
food and cooking equipment. His story as retold here teaches readers
about the core value of honesty—telling it like it is.
