I love learning history from the eyes of a dog! Ranger travels back in time to rescue children from history’s most famous disasters. When his first aid kit hums to life, it’s time to travel. In book 6, Ranger is sent back to San Francisco for the 1906 Earthquake. His job— to rescue 3 kids, first from earthquake, then from fire, and worst of all, from anti-Chinese prejudice. Ranger is thrown clueless into each mission, and he can't return home until the kit hums to life again.
The back matter helps you uncover the truth to this story which was based on accounts from people who survived the quake. The best part—the words and pictures about San Francisco in 1906, and today.
Whenever I read or write, I find a comfy chair with a great view. I get my favorite drink, stretch out, and let the words take me away.
