The manuscript was run off on a copy machine. Words are small and blurry. You cannot enlarge the print because of the manner in which they copied it. Do not bother downlaoding this version. Try another.

I read this book for school and am really glad that i did. I learned a lot from it and really enjoyed it. I would suggest anyone read it. It might be difficult to read and understand for kids younger than twelve and anyone younger than that probably would not enjoy it either. I found it very interesting though.
