Hitches and Ditches on the Erie Canal Book Study Guide by Hannah Stuart
Sometime back I went seeking a book that would teach my students about the history of the construction of the Erie Canal and what led into the Westward Expansion. When I could find nothing of that venue, I began to write a short story and it evolved into a chapter book. The book is available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble. This study guide accompanies the book and will offer great discussions: truth versus lies, friendship and betrayal, etc. The book has been reviewed by two historical professors for historical accuracy. It is suspenseful and is a coming of age story as well. I have read it to my students every year and they always applaud at the end and beg me to make a movie. Of course they are a bit biased about the author. I hope you do enjoy it.
