Henry, Paul Revere's Ride by Longfellow, An Old-Fashioned Girl by Louisa May Alcott, Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass by Frederick Douglass, Walden by Thoreau, and others.
Each work features an introduction that includes a short author biography.

Shorter selections are included in-book, while longer pieces (such as Alcott's An Old-Fashioned Girl and Elizabeth George Speare's The Sign of the Beaver) must be obtained separately. Each section also features a writing practice section that targets important skills and concepts (such as quotes, vocabulary, plot, developing a thesis, etc) relevant to writing an essay.
221 pages; non-consumable as answers must be written separately from the text.
This second edition differs in that it contains all-new lessons to Colson's Born Again, Kipling's If, McEvoy's If for Girls, and The Witch of Blackbird Pond. All of the readings used in Challenge I are now included in this volume. This edition has also been expanded and updated.
