  1. Thanks for your reply. I'm still a bit confused on the older versions though, especially the "Sonlight" edition having about half the pages of the other versions. I'm going to keep my eye out for the new ones though. They do look much better.
  2. The new color version is much more pleasing to the eye, but at $25 each for the two volumes, that's a lot. I'm still not sure why the Sonlight is half the size of the regular editions, but I found one used, in very good condition, for $4.41 with shipping, so I snatched it up. ;) We really don't have the time for 400 pages anyway, I suppose. I'll do good to get these guys thru 200. Thanks so much!
  3. I think I just figured out the huge discrepancies in the two with blue covers. The one with over 400 pgs is actually the white Vol 1 and the red Vol 2 in a blue case. Kind of makes sense. Why does the Sonlight edition have less than half of the pages of the original? We really don't have the time to read over 400 pages, so if it gets it done in less 200, I'm all for that.
  4. I was trying to find this used and have come up with so many different versions. Can someone help me know which to pick? There's the new full color, two volume set, which is certainly more pleasing to the eye, but much more expensive. I haven't found it used at all. In older editions, I found: Plymouth to the Moon Sonlight Edition 198 pgs ISBN: 1887840028 (blue cover) Plymouth to the Moon 412 pgs ISBN: 0394891201 (also blue cover) What in the world with the huge difference in pages??? Then: Plymouth to Appomattox Vol.1 221 pgs ISBN: 039489118X (white cover) Appomattox to the Moon Vol. 2 194 pgs ISBN: 0394891198 (red cover) Thanks so much for any insight to help me make a decision! :)
  5. I came across this two volume set, which is quite readable: http://www.christianbook.com/landmark-history-american-volume-1-plymouth/daniel-boorstin/9781935570134/pd/570137?event=CPOF But, Cathy Duffy's review said it "leaned a bit left". I also found this: http://www.christianbook.com/great-events-in-american-history/rebecca-janney/9780899570266/pd/570260?event=ESRCG It supposedly looks at historical events thru a Biblical worldview, but doesn't seem very detailed. Maybe combine the two? One leaning left, one leaning right. Differing perspectives, I suppose, might get them to engage and think. This is actually for two high school boys who despise books, reading, school, etc. That's why I posted here instead of the high school board. I was hoping to find an "easy read" that they would perhaps not balk at too much. Thank you for mentioning the Patriots History. Although it looked interesting, the size and scope was daunting.
  6. I've seen some old posts about a study guide, but the ones I've contacted no longer have it and google isn't finding it. Thanks, Kim
  7. I've seen a lot of old posts about a study guide for the book, but the ones I've contacted no longer have it and google is not turning up anything. It's like it disappeared! Thanks, Kim
  8. I'm having a harder time finding the Miller one used, but the Harding is readily available. I'm using it with TruthQuest, so the Harding won't be lined up like Miller, but I wouldn't think it would be too hard to match it up. Thanks, Kim
  9. Thank you for looking at it and giving me your insights. Which algebra program did you use?
  10. Would you mind taking a look at this sample and tell me what you think? http://cornerstonecurriculum.com/pdfs/samples/Level_7_samples.pdf
  11. I came across this and really can't find any reviews on it. Hoping someone here has used it. Thanks, Kim
  12. I want to research refinancing our mortgage. I absolutely do not understand points, closing, etc. What do I need to know to get the best deal? Thanks, Kim
