Nathan Hale's Hazardous Tales Vol. 1: One Dead Spy
Nathan Hale (the author's namesake) was America's first spy, a Revolutionary War hero who famously said 'I only regret that I have but one life to lose for my country' before being hanged by the British. In Hale's Hazardous Tales, author Hale channels his historical doppelganger to present history's roughest, toughest, craziest stories in graphic novel format for kids. This first book tackles the story of Hale himself, who was an officer for the American rebels in the Revolutionary War and was eventually hanged for spying. These stories each have elements of the 'strange but true,' and are presented in an engaging, funny format, highlighting the larger-than-life characters and the weird, gross, and just plain unbelievable truth of American History.
