Hannah yearns for more than the drudgery of farm life. Might war provide the opportunities so long denied her?

Hannah Wallace craves excitement, but all local adventures dried up long ago, when her parents unpacked their wagon on the Michigan frontier. Then war breaks out and her father and brother leave to fight the Confederacy. Hannah is left at home chafing under the boredom of never-ending chores and troubled by the memory of her deceased younger brother--until unscrupulous speculators set their sights on the unmanned farm. The one place she longs to leave suddenly becomes the one place she'll risk everything to save.

Likened to the well-loved tales of Ann Rinaldi, Blood of Pioneers contains an abundance of accurate American Civil War-era context, including:
slavery the struggles of unmanned farms army camp conditions the effects of the Emancipation Proclamation common ailments several major battlesThis powerful story abounding in rich imagery, frontier adventures, and beautifully turned phrases is an ideal accompaniment to an American history course or simply a stirring read for those interested in bygone days. The price is kept deliberately low so you can feel good about downloading your copy today.

The Divided Decade Collection includes three stand alone stories that view the American Civil War through three different lenses. All are set within Michigan. The Candle Star features the Underground Railroad. Blood of Pioneers illustrates the trials faced on the rural homefront after the menfolk leave for war. And Beneath the Slashings is set within a Northern lumber camp filled with returning soldiers. The books can be read out of order or read alone, depending on the theme that most interests the reader or most closely relates to a classroom curriculum. All three have been highly acclaimed by teachers and home schoolers. Each has lesson plans and additional resources available.
