It contains poems about people in American History. My favorite poem in this book is Pocahantas. It begins:
Princess Pocahantas,
Powhatan's daughter
stared at the white men
Come across the water.

She was like a wild deer
Or a bright plumed bird,
Ready then to flash away
At only one harsh word.

I am memorizing a poem called, "The Flag Goes By", by Henry Holcomb Bennet.

I love you!
