Tuesdays with Tundra 7

Tuesdays with Tundra is a monthly post on our new releases. The following books are available today in stores and online!

Five Thousand Years of  Slavery
By Marjorie Gann and Janet Willen
Hardcover | Ages 11+
ISBN 9780887769146
“…the authors weave their narrative around contemporary accounts and documented incidents, supplemented by period images or photos and frequent sidebar essays…. For timeliness, international focus and, particularly, accuracy, this leaves Richard Watkins’ Slavery: Bondage Throughout History (2001) in the dust….” – Kirkus Reviews

Shipwrecks, Monsters, and Mysteries of the Great Lakes
By Ed Butts
Trade Paperback | Ages 9-12
ISBN 9781770492066
eBook 9781770492585
“Younger readers … will find these robust historical accounts more digestible and at least as engrossing. The bibliography is dominated by Canadian sources, as befitting the book’s origin, but there’s plenty here to interest American readers.” – Kirkus Reviews

  1. Thank you for this opportunity! I know my book club kids would love Shipwrecks, Monsters, and Mysteries of the Great Lakes. Either way will be sure to add to our little library collection.

  2. I would love to be the lucky winner of a copy of “Shipwrecks, Monsters, and Mysteries of the Great Lakes,” By Ed Butts.

    Thanks!

  3. My 12 yr old daughter would definately learn a lot with either book, I’m sure! I would love to get my hands on ‘Shipwrecks, Monsters, and Mysteries of the Great Lakes’ for her, so that she could learn historical accounts from Canadian sources. It surely is important for Canadians to know about their homeland!

    Thanks for the opportunity.

  4. I think the shipwrecks books looks awesome. I tried to win it on GoodReads too. I think my 9 year old would even like it, although not sure he would be able to get over that the author’s last name is Butts : ) Good luck everyone.

  5. I’d love “Shipwrecks, Monsters, and Mysteries of the Great Lakes” — I devoured these kinds of books when I was younger, and this one sounds great, especially since I live in SW Ontario.

  6. I have been fascinated by ship wrecks since I first heard of the wreck of the Edmond Fitzgerald. I would love to win Shipwrecks, Monsters, and Mysteries of the Great Lakes.

  7. I would love to win the book “Shipwrecks, Monsters, and Mysteries of the Great Lakes” but I would like the other one too. :) Have a great day everyone!

  8. Oh, our greatest natural resource in Ontario…. The Great Lakes, probably have wonderful stories to tell in “Shipwrecks, Monsters, and Mysteries of the Great Lakes”. I’d love to read this, and share the history with my grandsons!

  9. I would be interested in reading Five Thousand Years of Slavery
    as I am a history fan but also active in human rights, thanks for the terrific offer

  10. Oooo. Tough choice. I live near one of the Great Lakes, but I’d probably go for the Five Thousand Years of Slavery. Thanks for the opportunity to enter.

  11. Shipwrecks, Monsters, and Mysteries of the Great Lakes
    By Ed Butts
    I live near Lake Huron and the local stories would be especially interesting!

  12. I would love to read ‘Five Thousand Years of Slavery’… I’ve heard about this book and it sounds fascinating. Not only does it cover slavery in the historical context, but my understanding is that it also covers modern slavery. There is also an examination of the reasons for this form of horror and why it still exists. Thanks!

  13. I would love to read Shipwrecks, Monsters, and Mysteries of the Great Lakes. I just finished reading The Wave by Susan Casey. What a great read!

  14. I think Shipwrecks,Monsters and Mysteries of the Great Lakes would be my first pick but really I’d want to read both. Hard choice.
