"The award-winning TRAILBLAZER BOOKS are action-packed historical fiction introducing great Christian heroes. Each page-turner portrays a significant period in a hero or heroine's life and ministry as seen through the eyes of a young protagonist. A page in the front explains exactly what is fiction and which events and characters are historical, and a 'More About' chapter at the end provides a brief biographical overview of the hero's life. We want kids to learn about pioneer missionaries and other important Christians . . . and have fun doing it."  - Dave and Neta Jackson
