Beowulf by Kevin Crossley-Holland with illustrations by Charles Keeping

“This is the story of a young man who travelled far across the sea to fight two terrifying monsters-one who could rip a man apart and drink his blood, the other who lived like a sea-wolf at the bottom of a dark, blood-stained lake. The young hero's name was Beowulf, and his story, first written in Anglo-Saxon in the eighth century, has become one of the world's most famous epics. Kevin Crossley-Holland retells the story for children in quick-paced, rhythmical prose accompanied by Charles Keeping's striking illustrations. Together they bring to life the beauty and power of one of the first great English poems.”

Vikings, paperback, very good condition
Knights in Armour, paperback, very good condition
Christopher Columbus, paperback, very good condition

More detail about one of the books: “Were the Vikings vicious? What did they do with their dead? How did they build their ships? Did they discover America? What was a berserker? This book tells us all about the northern warriors who sailed forth around 1000 years ago. It looks at the Vikings at home in Scandinavia, at war, and as explorers, settlers and traders venturing as far as Russia, Byzantium, and North America - nearly five centuries before Columbus. Drawing on contemporary evidence and recent archaeological discoveries, "Vikings" takes a close look at all the different aspects of the lives of these northern warriors. The "I Was There" photographic re-enactments combine with the author's lively text to bring the story of the Vikings vividly to life for a 20th-century readership.”

A History of US: Making Thirteen Colonies, 1600-1740, 3rd ed., by Joy Hakim

“People are coming to America--all kinds of people. If you're European, you come in search of freedom or riches. If you're African, you come in chains. And what about the Indians, what is happening to them? Soon with the influx of so many people, thirteen unique colonies are born, each with its own story. Meet Pocahontas and John Smith in Jamestown. Join William Penn and the Quakers in Pennsylvania. Sit with the judges at the Salem witch trials. Hike over the mountains with Daniel Boone. And let Ben Franklin give you some salty advice in his Poor Richard's Almanac in this remarkable journey through the dynamic creation of what one day becomes the United States.”

Hardback with glossy pages and color illustrations; it is in very good condition. Original price $19.95, asking for $7.00ppd (within the US only).
