Synopsis

James Whitcomb Riley by Minnie Belle Mitchell, Montrew Dunham

Travel back in time to the boyhood of one of the most popular poets of the early twentieth century. Author of "e;Little Orphan Annie,"e; "e;The Old Swimmin' Hole,"e; and hundreds more poems, "e;Bud"e; Riley spent his childhood in mid-nineteenth century Indiana, where stagecoaches were a common sight, rope swings were the only thrill rides, and telling spooky stories by firelight was the best entertainment of all. Praised by parents, teachers, and historians, the Young Patriots Series is an ideal way to sweep today's young readers into history. The everyday details of family life, the time period in which they lived, what they wore, and the challenges they faced in school create a window through which children can access history. The evidence of character, responsibility, ability, and courage showcase situations to which every child can relate.
