This is a study guide for the book titled Defeat of the Ghost Riders, by Dave & Neta Jackson. In this book, 8-year-old Celeste and her family moves to Florida from Georgia after the Ku Klux Klan burns down her father's business. Celeste becomes one of the first students at Mary Bethune's new school for African-American girls.
There are 40 books in the TRAILBLAZER series. Each book focuses on the life of a Christian hero or a missionary. The books are classified as historical fiction because one or more fictional young people are included, but the information about the hero/missionary is true -- and there is a biographical section at the end of each book. The stories are suspenseful and engaging -- and readers learn about many Christian heroes and missionaries.
Defeat of the Ghost Riders is set in the United States from 1904 to 1920; the Christian hero is Mary Bethune.
Each section of this guide contains vocabulary exercises, questions for discussion, and a reading activity. Extension activities and an answer key are also included.
