Dear parents, teachers and TRAILBLAZER readers, You are about to take an exciting adventure and meet a great Christian hero - George Muller, Christian Reformer. For us, one of the most fun parts of writing the Trailblazer Books is doing the research. The Bandit Of Ashley Downs was no exception - digging up facts about those who supported Muller, learning about mid-nineteenth century English orphanages and orphans, exploring the fascinating country of England and its people and customs, discovering England's complicated history and how it affected people like George Muller. We hardly knew where to stop! We hope reading The Bandit of Ashley Downs will whet your appetite to find out more about England and George Muller.
Designed with homeschoolers and Christian educators in mind, each curriculum guide offers a Christian humanities approach to studying one Trailblazer Book and its Christian hero.
