Tirzah’s people, the Israelites, have been in slavery to the Egyptians for many years. Tirzah and her lame brother, Oren, help gather straw to make bricks. She observes the suffering of her people and the injustices that are done to them by the Egyptian police. Moses begs Pharaoh to let them go, but Pharaoh makes them work harder.
One night, when the plague of death strikes down Pharaoh’s own son, he allows the Israelites to flee on foot, only to pursue them with horses and chariots. He believes he will have them trapped between the mountains and the sea, but God miraculously delivers them. The Israelites celebrate with a song of hope and victory. Tirzah befriends a young Egyptian girl who has fled with them, even though others treat her badly. In spite of hardship and disappointment, Tirzah and her family keep trusting Yahweh to carry them through.
This is a delightful and interesting account of the Pilgrims. The book explores their religious oppression in England, their escape to Holland and eventual crossing to America on the Mayflower, and their early days in New England. The Stories of the Pilgrims is soundly founded on historical facts and records, and brings the reader detailed, everyday life of those pioneering Pilgrims and their families as they struggled to survive while maintaining their faith in the New World.
Have we been brainwashed about our roots? Read evidence that the writings in Genesis are more ancient than historians admit. Adam, Noah, and other eyewitnesses actually wrote these records for us. This unique course, based on Genesis 1-11, integrates the linguistic evidence and other fields of knowledge with the Bible. It clears up the fuzziness of history before Egypt. Through literature and art it reveals startling insights about giants, dragons, cherubim and other beings that the early people knew but we have lost in myth. Gives true answers to age-old questions of God, man, and the world — in order to develop the right worldview, which leads to right thinking. Includes maps, charts, timeline and full-color reproductions of ancient art. Six units with flexible uses for teens, almost teens, and the rest of the family.
As is their custom, the d’Aulaires have thoroughly researched their subject in order to provide the most historically accurate account of the life of the man Samuel Eliot Morrison called “the greatest mariner that ever lived.” In their pursuit, the d’Aulaires traveled to Spain, Portugal, and the Caribbean Islands to research original documents on the life of Columbus. Their text reflects many little- known facts not generally included in the typical biographies of Columbus. Readers will learn that it was the saga of Leif Erickson that was one of the inspirations for Columbus’s voyage to the East. They will also learn that Columbus was such a skilled astronomer that he knew the exact date when the next eclipse of the moon was and used that knowledge to his advantage. They will also learn that though “Columbus was a great man, he was not a modest man. He wanted too much, and so he did not get enough” (54). This book is lavishly illustrated with the d’Aulaire’s detailed lithographs in four colors. 54pg

First published in 1946 with the d’Aulaires’s beautiful lithographic prints, this tale of the first colony at Jamestown is told from the perspective of the princess daughter of the mighty chief Powhatan. When the Natives judge the white man’s magic as evil, John Smith is condemned to death only the intervention of Pocahontas saves his life and a tentative friendship is established between Pocahontas’s tribe and the new colonists. The King of England sends a crown, rich robes and a royal bed to honor Powhatan and he is pleased, but the white man’s insistence that the Indians give them corn to sustain them through the long winters threatens their tenuous relationship. Pocahontas’s ultimate marriage to John Rolfe, the birth of their son, their voyage to England and presentation to the King and Queen is the stuff of fairy tales except that it is one of the great true stories of America’s earliest days.
