This series follows the life of several young people as they emigrate to and struggle to survive in early colonial America in the mid-sixteenth century. As these young people try to navigate stormy seas, outwit treacherous men, and survive devastating wars, they will learn the value of compassion, trust, forgiveness, and friendship. They provide multiple perspectives of historical events from the points of view of the people who lived them.

Based on a true story. In the award-winning novel, Thrown to the Wind, nine-year-old Etienne flees 1660 France with his family to avoid arrest for religious heresy. They face robbers, pirates, two perilous sea voyages, and an uncertain future to chart a new destiny.

The Teacher Resource for Thrown to the Wind is designed to accompany the true historical adventure novel Thrown to the Wind, teaches 9-12-year-old students higher order thinking skills as they learn about the 17th century religious wars and colonial American immigration through discussion questions, supplementary primary and secondary source readings, engaging cross-curricular activities, and projects.
