Into the Wilderness (Wilderness, #1)

Remember Benedict Arnold? He had a wife. And her story is really juicy, at least in this historical fiction novel. You’ll hear about his wife, Peggy, through the eyes of her maid. It’s the Revolutionary War meets “Downton Abbey.” Trust us on this one.

Context clues...This amazing internationally-acclaimed book would make a good wrap up for the end of a unit on fairytales. Students must have background knowledge of fairytales before encountering this book. This book would also make a good mentor text for teaching vocabulary. Some complex words and phrases include: Furthermore, scrabbled, illustrator, desperately, “dressed to the nines”, and “furious discussion”.
