    Ick! Yuck! Eew!
    Our Gross American History
    By: Lois Miner Huey
    Kids study US history, but do they know what life long ago was really like? The past was full of yuckiness. The sounds, smells, filth, bugs, rats, poor hygiene, lack of dental and medical care, and bad food are not portrayed at today's historic sites, in movies, or in most books about US history. Yet this kind of stuff appeals greatly to kids. The purpose of this book is to de-sanitize the past, present it as it actually was, and help kids come to an understanding of how people put up with it—or didn't even notice.

    Forgotten Bones
    Uncovering a Slave Cemetery
    By: Lois Miner Huey
    Imagine you're watching a backhoe dig up the ground for a construction project when a round object rolls down a pile of dirt and stops at your feet. You pick it up, brush off some dirt, and realize you're holding a skull!

    This is exactly what happened in Albany, New York, in 2005. Workers were putting in new sewer line when a backhoe driver dug up a skull. After police declared the skull wasn't connected to any recent crimes, a team of archaeologists took a closer look. They determined the skull was from an African American who had died more than one hundred years earlier.

    Suddenly the construction site turned into an archaeological dig. Scientists excavated more bones and realized that they had located a long-lost slave cemetery. Slavery had been legal in the northern United States, including in New York State, in colonial times, but the stories of these slaves are largely unknown. This site became just the third slave cemetery ever to be excavated in the North. See how archaeologists pieced together the truth about these once forgotten bones.

    Floodwaters and Flames
    The 1913 Disaster in Dayton, Ohio
    By: Lois Miner Huey
    March 25, 1913, began as a typical day in Dayton, Ohio. Downtown bustled with streetcars, carriages, and automobiles. By 8:10 a rush of water from the Great Miami River flooded the city. Desperate people climbed trees and telephone poles to escape the torrent. For days, people were stranded, cut off from the outside world.

    Experience the Great Dayton Flood through the eyes of those who lived it. Today the storm that caused the flood and devastated Dayton and communities across the country is largely forgotten. But the residents of Dayton resolved never to suffer such a disaster again. Their heroic response became a model for how we prepare for and recover from natural disasters.

    Children of the Past
    Archaeology and the Lives of Kids
    By: Lois Miner Huey
    Do you have much in common with kids from long ago? Sure, their clothes and homes looked different. They ate different food and might not have ever gone to school. But they also made art—just like you. They helped their families with chores—just like you. They played with friends and siblings, and they explored the world around them.

    Archaeologists know about the lives of children from the past because of what they left behind: toys, tools, clothes, and more. So get ready to travel back in time and check out the lives of kids—from European cave kids twenty thousand years ago to American Indian kids one thousand years ago.
