She didn't like them as much as the Dear America versions, but said she enjoyed reading references to American history from a different perspective. She said one of the stories was about a girl who would be considered a traitor from our perspective but is a Canadian heroine.


One of the most eye opening experience for me was visiting the Ottawa museums for their take on what we call the French and Indian Wars (they call the seven year war). I knew Canadians were involved, but I had no idea at how different their experience was. That series would be very intersting to use in American History classes.

Welcome Aesssea, I hope you start to enjoy HF as we do. Once you start, it hard to leave these books, believe me.

Thanks for the warm welcomes, Laura and others! :) Laura, in response to your comment (please see above)--I am SOO hooked on HF, it's not even funny! ;) So much so in fact I'm planning on getting another bookshelf for my constantly growing collection.
