Before the Schoolhouse Was Red by Sharon Hess
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


I have been working in schools for a number of years and found that most junior high and high school students believe that history is the most boring of all their studies. I could relate to that, at their age I felt the same way. I began to tell the students stories that would tie the past with the present. Their interest was piqued and their curiosity aroused. I have lived in Cooke County for most of my life and enjoying reading stories of those who came here many years ago. Most history books are usually all dates and so to make my books enjoyable and to bring the characters to life, I passed on quotes from those who lived during those times and/ or their descendants. I also write on a level where my students can read and comprehend what they have read. I also included locations so the reader could go see the sites for themselves. Hopefully my next books will include photos. I have included a disc of photos from my last book signing and I would like photo number 13 to be placed on the back cover.
