The Story of John Greenleaf Whittier

By Francis E. Cooke
Level 9

This book, with its vivid description and engaging writing style, transported me back to New England in the 1800s. There, I followed the story of a simple farm boy who grew into a courageous and noble man. This book is good and beautiful literature at its best and is not to be missed!
