     I'm looking forward to sharing this freebie with my youngest son, who is the archer in the family. He hurt his knee yesterday so may have to sit a spell, so perhaps I'll read it aloud and send him my audio/video and this file to read along to. I'll bet you will enjoy "THE STORY OF WILLIAM TELL (PDF ebook) also!

     Here's how Jim Erskine describes his offering:
"Today’s resource is this classic retelling of the amazing true story (or is it a legend?) of the national hero of Switzerland – mountaineer, shepherd and bowman, William Tell. Read the story of how Tell was forced by the cruel governor Gessler, to shoot an apple off his son’s head, and how Tell became instrumental in leading the Swiss people to freedom. Excellent, concisely written historical narrative, just right for read aloud or study assignments."
