This album of exciting dramatized stories includes two stories about Native American heroes Sequoyah and Squanto; two stories about African-American heroes Henry Box Brown and Benjamin Banneker; and two true-to-life adventures!

Then, follow the 1600s era saga of the Patuxet tribe member Squanto, who greatly helped early colonists. Squanto survived kidnapping and slavery, yet forgave his enemies.
