Free sample

Max Dreyssig, human skeleton, sits in the South Australian Museum in its Biodiversity Unit, a bluebird perched on his hand. Max Dreyssig, the man, was born in 1850 in Germany and moved to Australia in 1874. He died in the North Adelaide Private Hospital in 1913, two weeks following surgery at the hand of one of the age's great medical professors, Doctor Archibald Watson. Pulling together what little we know about Max's life, this story examines his relationship with the inimitable Professor Watson and the reasons for him leaving his home in Germany following the Franco-Prussian War, in which he had fought. His was a time when the old world, Germany, became a newly confederated European powerhouse and the new Australian city, Adelaide, led the world in political reform and medical experimentation. Giving pony rides to children along Adelaide foreshores during his final years, Max lived alone but was never lonely. Max Dreyssig, Human Skeleton, the story, finally gives 'ole' Max Dreyssig' a voice - and a heart.

America’s #1 radio talk-show host and multi-million-copy #1 New York Times bestselling author presents a book for young readers with a history teacher who travels back in time to have adventures with exceptional Americans.

MEET RUSH LIMBAUGH’S REALLY GOOD PAL, RUSH REVERE!

Okay, okay, my name’s really Rusty—but my friends call me Rush. Rush Revere. Because I’ve always been the #1 fan of the coolest colonial dude ever, Paul Revere. Talk about a rock star—this guy wanted to protect young America so badly, he rode through those bumpy, cobblestone-y streets shouting “the British are coming!” On a horse. Top of his lungs. Wind blowing, rain streaming...

Well, you get the picture. But what if you could get the real picture—by actually going back in time and seeing with your own eyes how our great country came to be? Meeting the people who made it all happen—people like you and me?

Hold on to your pointy triangle hats, because you can—with me, Rush Revere, seemingly ordinary substitute history teacher, as your tour guide across time! “How?” you ask? Well, there’s this portal. And a horse. My talking horse named Liberty. And—well, just trust me, I’ll get us there.

We’ll begin by joining a shipload of brave families journeying on the Mayflower in 1620. Yawn? I don’t think so. 1620 was a pretty awesome time, and you’ll experience exactly what they did on that rough, dangerous ocean crossing. Together, we’ll ask the pilgrims all our questions, find out how they live, join them at the first Thanksgiving, and much more.

So saddle up and let’s ride! Our exceptional nation is waiting to be discovered all over again by exceptional young patriots—like you!
