The Little Books of American Wisdom series includes the following eight titles:
George Washington’s Rules of Civility & Decent Behavior
Ever the consummate gentleman, George Washington’s 110 “Rules” are just as relevant and applicable now as they were when he penned them. They are must-reads for the men and aspiring men in your family.
Paul Revere’s Ride
This book contains Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s famous poem, as well as Paul Revere’s own account of his legendary midnight ride. You’ve probably read the poem, but have you ever read the story in Revere’s own words?
The Way to Wealth
The first American book on personal finance, The Way to Wealth by Benjamin Franklin contains some of the best, simplest financial and business advice ever written. This little gem has been through innumerable printings, sold millions of copies, and even today is handed out by major companies and financial institutions to friends, clients, and customers.
The Declaration of Independence
In setting forth these “self-evident truths” alongside a list of grievances against King George's Britain, the Declaration of Independence justified the colonies’ breaking of ties with "Mother England" and forming a new country. This beautiful edition includes illustrations and biographies of the signers, together with the document itself.
The Strenuous Life
The indefatigable, inimitable Teddy Roosevelt preaches “the doctrine of the strenuous life” in this printed edition of his life-defining speech. His clarion call is clear: “Far better it is to dare mighty things, to dare glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.”
Robert’s Rules of Order
Originally published in 1876, Robert’s Rules of Order remains the definitive guide to parliamentary procedure used daily by private, governmental, business, and social organizations large and small. For those who desire to do things “decently and in order” in their local church, homeschool group, business, etc., this book is a must-have.
The Constitution of the United States of America
The United States Constitution outlines the limited powers and responsibilities of the three chief branches of America’s federal government, as well as the basic rights of United States citizens. Every American should own a copy of the Constitution — and read it. This beautiful edition contains the complete text of the United States Constitution, as well as all 27 of its amendments.
George Washington’s Farewell Address
George Washington left his country a legacy equaled by few Americans of his era or any other. His famous “Farewell Address” from the presidency encapsulates a view of the Union, the Constitution, and citizenship that remains an important part of American political thought even today.
