Journey to Monticello: Traveling in Colonial Times (Adventures in Colonial… (1982)
by James E. Knight
No current Talk conversations about this book.
An exciting, short adventure with fictional character Amos Trumbull, delivering a message from John Hancock in Boston to Thomas Jefferson at Monticello. The book explores the route and various modes of transportation in use in Colonial America. This edition had nice black and white illustrations on every page. I think a map of the route would enhance this story, especially for young readers just learning geography.
Follows a young man as he uses different modes of transportation to make the long difficult trip from Massachusetts to Virginia in the spring of 1775.
