Boundaries : how the Mason-Dixon Line settled a family feud & divided a nation

Walker, Sally M.

Somerville, Massachusetts : Candlewick Press, 2014.

202 pages : illustrations, maps ; 27 cm

One of America's most enduring boundaries is the Mason-Dixon Line, most associated with the divide between the North and the South and the right to freedom for all people. Walker traces the tale of the Line through family feuds, brave exploration, scientific excellence, and the struggle to define a cohesive country. But above all, this story of surveying, marking, and respecting lines of demarcation reinforces the guaranteed right and responsibility to explore, challenge, change, and defend the boundaries that define us.
