Centered on "living books," this creative approach to history integrates elements of both Charlotte Mason and Classical methods.
Short, very informal introductions are written directly to the student and open up each topic with a distinctly Christian perspective. Suggestions for activities or writing exercises are often included as well. The booklists follow, with selected annotations on what pages or sections to read and appropriate grade levels for each entry. Incredibly flexible in nature, families can proceed at the pace that's best for their students as they select "spines," biographies, in-print books, and out-of-print classics from the extensive lists.
Proceeding chronologically, entries include lists for the Fall of Constantinople, War of the Roses, Christopher Columbus, Queen Elizabeth, El Greco, Johannes Kepler, Roanoke Colony, and other relevant unit-study topics.
Grades 5-12; may be adapted for younger siblings. 115 pages, softcover, spiral-bound. Full resource list is included at the back of the book.

Lynda Gravier5 Stars Out Of 5February 21, 2008Lynda GravierThis is the resource I have been looking for throughout the past 7 years of homeschooling! If I had only known these guides were out there, I would have saved myself a lot of work and given my kids a much clearer view of each era of history we've studied. The author provides a tremendous reading list -- far more than you'll ever need to use. Many have been available to our local library; we've bought others used. What I love is the use of "real books" that make the history come alive in the context of a story, plus the "spine book" that fills in the relevant facts in a chronological manner. "The Story of Liberty" was a wonderful spine book for this series. Needless to say, we're staying with TruthQuest History from here on in! Next year The Age of Revolution 1.
