Frederick Douglass’s daughter tells her own story of segregation and triumph.<P>"Rosetta, Rosetta, Sit by me!" That’s what the white girls at Miss Tracy’s Female Seminary yell when Rosetta, Frederick Douglass’s nine-year-old daughter, shows up on the first day of school. But things don’t turn out the way she expects. Not only does she have to study in a classroom all by herself, but she’s also kept apart at recess. Told in Rosetta’s voice, and illustrated throughout, this remarkable chapter book includes a biographical endnote; a time line; reproductions of a letter from Rosetta to her father and Frederick Douglass’s newspaper, the <i>North Star</i>; and source notes.

•This edition adds 100+ photos, maps, and notes to Meeker’s original manuscript.<br /><br />The Oregon Trail comes alive in this page-turning true story of Ezra Meeker’s journey west. As fresh today as the day he wrote it, Meeker’s first-hand account paints a vivid picture of the hardships and joys of the western migration.<br /><br />The bonus material provides a layer of context that gives readers a much deeper understanding of one of the most interesting Americans of all time.<br /><br />Ezra Meeker’s quest for new frontiers began in his boyhood. As soon as he was old enough, he ventured west on the Oregon Trail. After settling in what is now the state of Washington, he found himself destitute and hungry. But Meeker was a man of action—and gradually built himself up to the point where he became the richest man in the state. Then, he lost it all. Penniless, he built another fortune, and then lost that too.<br />Later in life, he dedicated himself to preserving the memory of the Oregon Trail, retracing his original journey.  With two oxen and a covered wagon, he traveled from Washington state to Washington D.C. in the early 1900s, a two-year odyssey that attracted great fanfare in cities along the way. Without Meeker’s preservation and education efforts, it’s unlikely schoolchildren today would know much about the Oregon Trail (and there certainly would not be an Oregon Trail game!)<br /><br />Ezra Meeker was an eyewitness to history; a real-life Forrest Gump. He traveled the Oregon Trail in its heyday, experienced the Klondike gold rush, made enormous fortunes in the wild west, became nationally famous, and met three U.S. presidents.<br />And he details it all in this fascinating book. Enjoy the journey!<br />

Catherine Sager's story is among the most gripping firsthand accounts of life in the American west ever written. This enhanced version of her original manuscript adds explanatory notes, photos, maps, drawings, and 3d visualizations. The bonus material adds a layer of context to make Sager’s fascinating account even more vivid.<br /><br />Catherine Sager faced almost unimaginable hardship: both her parents died on the journey west on the Oregon Trail; a few years later her adoptive parents were brutally murdered before her eyes. She was even kidnapped and held for ransom. Yet Catherine was a survivor, and she lived a long life in Oregon. Her accounts of life on the Oregon Trail and the Whitman Massacre remain important historical documents. At the same time, she is an excellent writer who knows how to engage the reader.
