Book Reviews from 2012:

~ Dinotopia (Books 1-4) by James Guerney - Highly recommended - Kids and I all loved it... great adventure, excellent introduction to new vocabulary for the kids, prompted much discussion of history, geography, government, exploration, and relationships.

~ Power of Myth by Joseph Campbell - Highly recommended - Provided an excellent overview of myths and religions of the world and analysis.

~ Declaration of Independence - Must Read! Plan to read this often to remind my family and I of the sacrifices made for us to live in freedom and the responsibility we have to defend our liberty.

~ The Secret Destiny of America by Manly P. Hall - Highley recommended - Provided a different view of history from any learned in school, broadened my understanding of a utopian society to a more libertarian vision, referenced many classics to add to my future reading list.
