Product Description:

Ten year old Willy lives on a potato farm with his grandfather in Wyoming. They enjoy each other's company and live a fairly routine life. Then one morning, Grandfather fails to wake Willy up like usual. Willy finds Grandfather very sick, but according to the doctor, Grandfather is as healthy as can be. Apparently, he has simply lost the will to live. Willy can not figure out why until one day they have a surprise visitor. Willy learns that the property taxes on the farm have not been paid for over ten years, and they are in danger of losing the farm. Although the townspeople encourage Willy to sell the farm, he instead decides to enter the National Dogsled Race in hopes of paying the taxes with the prize money. His main competitor is Stone Fox, a man who has never lost a race in his life. It is literally a fight to the death as Willy races to save Grandfather's farm. ~ Enh

Category Description for Progeny Press Study Guides & Books:

The best way to describe these wonderful books is "literature and Bible study rolled into one." Truly from a Christian perspective, these classic and award-winning books are examined in the light of God's Word and a Biblical worldview. The author sent us several review copies and they are wonderful!

Each guide includes:

- a concise synopsis of the book

- information about the book's author

- background information pertinent to the story

- suggestions for activities relating to the subject matter

- introduction of literary terms

- vocabulary exercises for each section of reading

- comprehension, analysis, and application questions for each section of reading with discussion of related Biblical themes

- a complete answer key and suggestions for further reading

Their brochure states "Our goal is to teach students of all ages to examine what they read, Christian or secular, classic or contemporary, and value the truth it contains as measured against the Bible." A worthy goal indeed! If you want to study great literature from a Christian perspective, here's your answer! If in doubt, try just one - we're sure you'll be back for more!

Progeny Press guides are available in two formats: softcover staplebound booklets and CD-ROMs. The CD-ROMs originally featured printable .pdf files, but Progeny Press is now transitioning these to interactive .pdf files. Inspired by a tax software, these files are able to be used by the student on the computer, or printed out. Questions in the files have text boxes to type in or buttons to select, so you won't have to print worksheet pages if you don't want to. Plus, users can grade their answers and leave notes as well! Upper Elementary through High School CD guides are now interactive, while Lower elementary
