Tom is curious about the Native American burial ground, but his father warns him not to go there. But someone tells Tom and his friend that it is haunted. Tom's friend dares him to go.

When night comes, Tom and his friend head out to the burial ground, but they find no ghosts. Instead they find Native American riders coming to pay their respects.

This was fun, very easy read. I think the story really teaches a good lesson of learning to accept all peoples.

While not the best source of information about our third president, this book is a nice start for exposing young readers, both reading independently or with an adult, to non-fiction writing.
