Written in Bone by Sally M. Walker

If you're a fan of non-fiction than you should really pick up a copy of this book! If you are a fan of the television show Bones, also pick up this book.
I am not usually a big fan of non-fiction but this book captured my attention from the very beginning. It is set in Maryland and gives you a great history lesson about who settled here and how archeologists, geologists, and other scientists work together to collect information about ancestors long forgotten. It has detailed pictures and it discusses the findings of the bones and artifacts in a way that even 6th grade students can understand it. A great tool for teachers who are discussing the history of Jamestown and/or Maryland. The author includes where the sites are and you can even visit these sites.
Great book for home-schooled children in the VA, MD area.
5 out 5 stars on my list! Educational, great pictures, and great information for students and adults alike!
