Instead of stealing the Indians’ land, Friend Penn wanted to buy it fairly with cloth, mirrors, and other special trinkets from the Old World. This book holds a beautiful message about fairness and respect that resulted in many years of peace between the Indians and settlers in Pennsylvania. An enjoyable way for children to learn about William Penn. (59pp. full-color illus. hardcover. TGS International, 2017.)
