I just love the Dave and Neta Jackson historical fiction series. I have found these books to be a great way to learn about the lives of men and women who have made an impact on the lives of others. The kids love 'em, too!
Star Shining Forever
This is one of the few Trailblazers that's a pretty cool mystery story ;)
