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

    Walker, Sally M.

    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.

Winnie followed Harry everywhere and slept under his cot every night. Before long, she became the regiment's much-loved mascot. But who could care for the bear when Harry went to battle? Harry found just the right place for Winnie--the London Zoo. There a boy named Christopher Robin played with Winnie--he could care for this bear too!"--Provided by publisher.
