Samples of all of our titles are available on Amazon so that you and your faculty, and students can see if the narratives are engaging.
The ebooks are a combination of young adult and regular trade biographies. These books were not published in the last couple of years. Typically, they are trade biographies or young adult titles published in the 60s, 70s, 80s or 90s. They are out of print in paper. We contacted the writers or the heirs of the writers and contracted with them for re-publication in ebook form. A few are public domain titles not available on Project Gutenberg or Internet Archive.
They are good reads and quality books; many were written by journalists whose mission was to inform without overwhelming readers with technical details. Other were written by authors who specialized in books for young adults such as the prize-winning Emma Gelders Sterne. Several were reviewed in the New York Times and other newspapers at publication. One of our writers was the first woman to win a Pulitzer prize as a foreign correspondent. Her ebook, War in Korea: The Report of a Woman War Correspondent is an easy to read account of the chaos in the first year of the Korean War.
And the FAQ section of our website contains advice on how to share the ebooks which you have downloaded from our site with your students.
