What was it like to be a boy at the turn of the first millennium — the Year 1000? An 11-year-old Saxon named Edmund knew, and now he shares it with you. Every turn of the century thereafter, from 1100 to 2000, another boy shares his story. Learn about a world almost lost in the mists of the past through the eyes of eleven real boys, all the author’s actual ancestors. Lavishly illustrated. Includes extra material for learning and study. Ideal for homeschool use in history, social studies, geography, spelling and vocabulary.
Available in durable hard cover or glossy paperback. Colorful and artistic.
Actual Thank You Note from a boy who received Boy Centurions from his grandparents.
“Children wish fathers looked but with their eyes; fathers that children with their judgment looked; and either may be wrong. . . . Men from children nothing differ. And this, our life, exempt from public haunt, finds tongues in trees, books in the running brooks, sermons in stones, and good in everything.” William Shakespeare (proud to be included in this fine book)
“Thank you for the book Boy Centurions. Daddy read it on the airplane and I read the whole thing last weekend. I liked everything in the book, especially the stories about America. Tell me when you write another book.”
from Josiah (Plymouth, England, UK)
You may not remember me but I remember you fondly.
Thanks so much for your kind words about my book. I am so pleased that you enjoyed it.
I have written a new one. Life in the Saddle is the semi-autobiography of Davie Hogan a pioneer church planter and missionary to Cherokee on the American frontier in the 1800s. I think you would like it though it is no written for a kid audience like oh Centurions was. Anyway, you can check it out on 4dmm.org or Amazon. Amazon may be cheaper for the UK as far as shipping.
