Recommends it for: struggling readers, race issues
I found this laying around - one of the books I was reading to see which pupils it would appeal to at school and discovered I had never heard of this amazing man. It is all about Mathew Henson, who was an African-American explorer who finally reached the 'North Pole' and clearly shows the race divide during the beginning of the last century.
