Angel Island by Russell Freedman Angel Island, Paperback / softback (October 2016)

From Newbery award winner Russell Freedman comes an account of "the other Ellis Island" Angel Island, California, the entry point for one million Asian immigrants in the early 20th century."

Vietnam by Russell Freedman Vietnam, Hardback (August 2016)

"Newberry Medalist Russell Freedman provides a succinct account of perhaps the most puzzling and controversial of America's wars. Describing how a superpower caught up in the 1950s cold war politics became increasingly enmeshed in a conflict over 8,000 miles away, he then explains why twenty years later an exit was so difficult."--Cover page [2].

We Will Not be Silent by Russell Freedman We Will Not be Silent, Hardback (May 2016)

As older students, the Scholls and a few friends formed the White Rose, a campaign of active resistance to Hitler and the Nazis. Risking imprisonment, the White Rose members distributed leaflets urging Germans to defy the Nazi government.

Reviews

US Kirkus Review » A successor of sorts to Immigrant Kids (1980) - but a less focused, more diffuse entity. The title, indeed, is something of a misnomer: though the period photographs that are the book's prime attraction frequently show frontier children, much of the volume has simply to do with the westward travel and settlement of which children were a part. On the other hand, the chapter on the lives of Indian children is really ethnography, except for mention of Indian boarding schools. Subsequent chapters - on frontier schools, on chores and paid employment (Nat Love and other black cowhands, Lotta Crabtree and other performers), on assorted diversions - are somewhat less fulfilling than reading Laura Ingalls Wilder. (They're also somewhat less frank: "Discipline. . . was not usually a serious problem for female teachers," we're told. "In those days they were respected because they were women.") As an account of frontier conditions, however, the text is as unromantic as the photos (e.g., "Accidents and disease killed far more emigrants than the Indians did"); and the endpaper photo alone - a multiethnic, multiracial crush of children in Central City, Colorado - will make the book memorable for some. (Kirkus Reviews)
