Jefferson's Dream: The Ballad of the Declaration of Independence
Hobblebush Books, 2009 - Biography & Autobiography - 80 pages
Literary Nonfiction. United States History. Education. With accompanying CD. Republic in story and song. With commentary, musical scores, ballad lyrics, and a CD, the book explores the lives of eight great Americans: Jefferson, Harriet Tubman, Lincoln, Frederick Douglass, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Thoreau, Ida B. Wells, and Eleanor Roosevelt. In the best arts-education tradition, the book dramatizes how each of these figures carried forward the values of the Declaration of Independence--and how their struggles for liberty and equality continue to impact our lives. The sewn paperback with gatefold flaps will hold up to music stands and classroom use. "John Perrault has a great passion for history and a wonderful insight into the American Experience," says folksinger Bill Staines.
