All of our bargain books are brand new, perfectly readable and represent a tremendous value! The bargain books are, however, publisher overstocks and remainders that TRW purchases at deep discounts. As a result, they may have a small mark through the UPC bar code or a small mark on the side of the book. This is simply to mark the books so they cannot be sent back to a publisher. Because of this, bargain books are non returnable to TRW unless they are damaged. Please consider this before ordering.

Reviewed by School Library Journal Reviews (SLJ Reviews 2006 July)

Gr 7-9 -Each biography includes a chronology of the subject's life and the significant events of his times, a chart of quick facts, and an extensive index. The books are enlivened with full-color paintings, sketches, maps, and photographs. In the first title, Winthrop's concern for religious freedom is portrayed, as is his belief that Puritan precepts should be the laws of the people. Williams recounts the life of a man determined to separate the church from the affairs of the state. In the third book, Somervill tells the story of William Penn and his struggle to find a place to worship without persecution. All three books discuss why the men left England, their joys and trials in the New World, and their search to find the perfect colony. While not especially lively, the narratives offer clear pictures of life in Colonial times.-Delia Carruthers, Sunset Ridge Middle School, West Jordan, UT
