Rating: ★★★½☆

Did you know that Sacagawea was born in the year 1784? I know that it was a long time ago, but it is very interesting. Sacagawea’s life was very adventurous. A lot of people didn’t know that Sacagawea had TWO children, a boy and a girl. I wouldn’t recommend this because it tells some very good information, but I wish it would tell more.

I liked the book becuase it had lots of interesting facts. I learned a lot from this book. Pocahontas was born in 1595 abd died in 1616. She spoke Algonkian. She saved John Snith’s life. He was an Englishman. She married John Rolfe and had a baby boy. His name was Thomas. He was born in 1615. That was a summary of the book. If I liked the book, then you will. Have a good time reading!

Wow, this book had such an interesting setting! The setting was in the early 1800’s. It is a time when slavery divided the Union in the North from the Confederacy in the South. This is the time the John Brown lived in.
There were also three major people that John Brown cared about in his life. The most important person was Dianthe Brown. She was his first wife. She died after giving birth to her seventh child. The second person that was important to John was Frederick Douglas. The last person was Harriet Tubman, a black woman who helped slaves escape through the underground railroad.
John Brown had three children that lived. Their names were Hannah, Sarah, and Owen. John also had a second wife named Ann Brown. In the end, John Brown was executed for his belief in ending slavery. I hope you love this book!
