Q – Middle School Books ~ Blogging Through the Alphabet

Q

Well, this one I am fudging a bit. We don’t have any favorites that begin with Q. We just don’t. But we have read a couple so I will share those, even though this post is quite a bit later in the week than normal.

Quanah Parker by Len Hilts

There are a number of biographies on this great Comanche warrior, one of the very last of his kind to hold onto their freedom as white men moved West. He tried hard to hold to traditions while living in peace. He walked that border between his native people and white men, as his mother was a child taken during a raid on a fort in central Texas. He was a guide for his people, even after they were moved to reservations and helped them to accept and adapt to their new lives.

We have read a biography of Quanah Parker when we visited Fort Parker, which is where Quanah’s mother, Cynthia Ann Parker, was taken from,  but I do not believe it was this one, as I don’t really recognize the cover. The one I remember is not on the library catalog any longer so must have been moved. This one looks good, though.

Quake! Disaster in San Francisco, 1906 by Gail Langer Karwoski

This is the story of a young boy who experienced the earthquake in San Francisco in 1906. He is apart from his family when the quake hits and so this is his story of trying to survive the aftermath of the disaster. It is a fictional account but the author includes a section at the end that helps the reader to separate fact from fiction.

Again, we have not read this particular book but have enjoyed a few stories about survival in the aftermath of disasters. One of Miss J’s favorite book series is the I Survived and this seems to go somewhat along those same lines.

That’s it for this week. Next week, we will carry on with some favorites.

Blessings,
At Home.

    I was just thinking that Quake sounded a lot like the I survived series and my boys just love those. These look like wonderful books.

    Quake looks interesting, survival books can be fascinating.
