The World of Captain John Smith by Genevieve Foster We love these books. Genevieve Foster covers a lot of history in these books. This book starts with the birth of Captain John Smith and ends with his death but what comes in between is a whole lot more. Genevieve Foster always fills her books with history. It covers all the major events of world history that occur between the dates of the birth and death of Smith. For instance: The Spanish Armada is destroyed by English ships, El Greco was the great painter in Spain, Shakespeare writes his plays, Jamestown was founded, Rembrandt began to paint, the Taj Mahal was being built, and the Mayflower Compact is signed.
I added my books to my Reading Pages... see the tabs at the top of the page or click these links:
- Reading 2010 - 52 Books in 52 Weeks page book 7/52
- Reading 2010 - 100+ Books Challenge page. Some other books have been added to the 100 books in a year list that don't count here because they are juvenile. For the 100+ book challenge I am up to 10/100.
