The 1950s Landmark series from Random House is now a classic. This is a FIRST EDITION of George Washington: Frontier Colonel written by Sterling North in 1957, illustrated by Lee Ames.

According to this review on Exodus Books website: "The Landmark Books are a series of non-fiction books published by Random House in the fifties and early sixties. Simply put, the Landmark series is the best collection of children's histories ever written. As a jacket blurb on an old edition stated, the reasons [for the series' popularity] are obvious: good writers and important and appealing subjects from America's past."

Goodreads.com puts it this way...

"World Landmark Books are true stories from world history for young people nine to fifteen years old. These living histories were written by award-winning authors or by men and women who experienced the events first-hand. Written during the 1950's and 60's and illustrated either with two-color drawings or clear photographs, the books are informative, enjoyable, and well worth collecting and reading."
