If you teach early United States history and you do it (or would like to) through the novel, then this resource is for you!
is a novel with a Lexile level of 820. This historical fiction book teaches readers about the challenges explorers and colonists faced while traversing the wide open ocean, settling in new parts of the world, and interacting with different cultures. The author, Eliza Carbone, goes further by teaching the reader about the European class structure and how it changed in the development of the colonies. She uses great imagery, and gives teachers the opportunity to teach figurative language, character development/change, and theme. Boys, girls, and teachers always love this book.
