The Old Schoolhouse Magazine

Both of these books [Great Escapes: Real Tales of Harrowing Getaways and Rebels and Revolutions: Real Tales of Radical Change in America] brought a lot of hard times to light for my son. He didn’t want to set them down. While I wanted to use these for history lessons, they disappeared for a time and when they came back to my desk, they were well loved and read. These were hard for me to set down and I loved that my son felt the same way.

I plan to revisit these stories one by one while we study each time period in our history studies and can focus on them more. However, having these written in a manner that my son fell in love with, means that he has a great introduction to our history. It may not all be good, but now he knows the struggles, the fights, the escapes the battle that it took to be free.

If your children love to read true stories and you want them to know more about our history, these books should be available to them! I look forward to adding the rest of the Mystery & Mayhem series to my shelf!

Always in the Middle
Non-fiction readers can rejoice with the release of the sixth book in the Mystery and Mayhem series. In REBELS AND REVOLUTIONS read the true stories of five individuals who chose to rise up and fight injustice in America. . . Perfect for home or the classroom, I can’t say it any better than what you’ll find in Nomad’s Press logo: BOOKS TO INSPIRE LEARNING. Riveting, adventurous stories provide the inspirational fuel for any middle grader and even some of us older middle graders! Read the complete review online.

Praise for other titles in the series:

Pirates and Shipwrecks: Real Tales of Terror on the High Seas
Survival: Real Tales of Endurance in the Face of Disaster
Kirkus Reviews
“Employing a casual, conversational tone that reads easily, McCarthy spins five yarns of bloodthirsty pirates and harrowing shipwrecks. McCarthy shows a good sense for the interesting and gory detail, offering up plenty of blood-soaked action while keeping it appropriate for a young readership. Included after each vignette are other notable facts of the time period, and at the end of the offering is a glossary and resources. Releasing simultaneously is Survival, a volume that follows the same format and offers accounts of events such as the Donner Party disaster. Recommend this to fans of the I Survived… series who might be seeking a bit more fact and a little less fiction. A breezy offering just right for fans of survival tales.”
