This Country of Ours, Chapter 13

Ok, time for the next book. “This Country of Ours”, by Henrietta Elizabeth Marshall, is a book of US history for kids, from early exploration and settlement to the presidency of Woodrow Wilson.

It’s very long, but divided nicely into six or seven parts so I’ve divided my recordings likewise. I posted all of Part 1 back in 2008, but if you missed it you can download Part 1 here and catch up: http://librivox.org/this-country-of-ours-part-1-by-he-marshall/.

And now, on with Part 2: Stories of Virginia, from chapter 13 (Captain John Smith) to chapter 21 (The Knights of the Golden Horseshoe). You can read along and view the original illustrations at mainlesson.com. (You can buy a lovely paperback reprint of the original book there, too!)
