    Story

    With exquisite care, National Book Critics Circle Award winner Louise Erdrich has fashioned a story rich in the way of life and heritage of the Ojibwa people, a story that begs to be told out loud. As each season in a year of Omakayas' life is lovingly portrayed, the satisfying rhythm of her days is shattered when a stranger visits the lodge one night, bringing with him an invisible enemy that will change things forever.

    Story

    Why is the land so important to Cassie's family? It takes the events of one turbulent year, the year of the night riders and the burnings, the year a white girl humiliates Cassie in public simply because she is black, to show Cassie that having a place of their own is the Logan family's lifeblood. It is the land that gives the Logans their courage and pride, for no matter how others may degrade them, the Logans possess something no one can take away.

    The narrator is incredible, the story is beautiful and educational. A wonderful story which will lead to many enriching conversations about black history.

    Esteemed Egyptologist Barbara Mertz updates her widely praised social history of the people of ancient Egypt, which was originally published in 1968. Combining impeccable scholarship with a delightfully personal style, the author reconstructs the life of the Egyptians from birth to death, and beyond death, too.

    Elizabeth says: "Brilliant"
    "Wonderful!"
    Overall

    My 7 and 10 year old daughters who study a lot of history as home schoolers, LOVE this book. We listen to it every day during meals and in the car. Full of information which brings ancient Egypt to life in an entertaining manner. For adults and young history buffs, a great listen!
