American Adventure series
The kids and I have a favorite series of books...historical fiction...that we've been reading through over the last year.The American Adventure series is a series of 48 books that tell all about American history, from the Mayflower to World War 11. We've read books 1-3 and book 6...now we're going back to finish 4 and 5 before moving on...when we began I did not have the entire set yet, so we just read what we had or could find at the library. At the used curriculum sale in May, I just happened to spy a box..the entire set...at someone's booth. I had been trying to purchase a full set on Ebay with no luck...I always lost the bid to someone willing to pay more $$$ than me...like $350-$500. Anyway, when I asked the lady at the booth how much and she said $50, I pounced on them. I know I never would have been able to find them elsewhere that cheaply. It was definitely a God thing. :) Now the first ones I found, before I even knew how great they are or how much in demand, I got at a used book store. Now that I have a full set, I don't need the extras, so I have listed them on Ebay. There are 18 of them...not in sequence. Check it out if you think you might be interested. Here's the link.
