I read every single one of these as a child, time and time again; as an adult I have sought them out as treasured mementoes of my childhood. These books, the adventures and places they took me and the history I learned from them; they WERE my childhood!

They can be hard to find, but THANK GOD publishers are beginning to re-publish many editions from the series and believe you me I am buying them in book form AND on my Kindle.

If you have children or nieces and nephews, BY every book in this series

I found this in the attic at my parents house the last time I was home and took it only because of Lexington's proximity to Watertown. Didn't quite realize it was a children's book but I read it anyway. It was entertaining enough for a few hours.

Another of our read-alouds. My kids thoroughly enjoyed this one, but were left hanging with the ending.

This is a great living book and should be on your Must Read List when studying this time period.
