Available for the first time under one cover, these are the original texts about the history, references, and personalities of the unschooling/homeschooling movement as assembled by author John Holt (How Children Fail; Learning All the Time). First hand accounts from homeschooling's early pioneers, John Holt's personal touch on nearly every page, and hundreds of stories about children, learning, politics, schooling, legal action, etc. make this book vital to anyone seriously studying homeschooling. The first printing of this book was just 100 copies, which were sold almost exclusively to libraries. Our new edition features reproductions of original GWS issues in a new appendix, better production, and a print run of 2,000 copies that enables us to lower the price on this valuable resource. Thorough index.
