Home school reading may never have been Dandelion author, Norman D. Livergood's intention when he first starting writing books.
The first work that he published with Dandelion, America, Awake! was a “Paul Revere” call to action. Writes Livergood in the book’s Introduction:
“This book is intended as a wake-up call for Americans, as Paul Revere awakened the Lexington patriots to the British attack on April 18, 1775, and as Thomas Paine's Common Sense roused apathetic American colonists to recognize and struggle against British oppression.
“Our current situation is similar to that which American patriots faced in the 1770s: a country ruled by ‘foreign’ and ‘domestic’ plutocratic powers and a divided citizenry uncertain of their vital interests."
America, Awake! and three other Norman D. Livergood titles published by Dandelion present a comprehensive set of home school reading textbooks for students of high school age.
The Livergood books teach young people how to become more aware, organize their thoughts and enrich their intellectual power base with words of wisdom from the great teachers of the past.
Recently, Dandelion published a fifth Livergood book co-authored by his journalist-editor wife, Michelle Mairesse:
“Worldwide, thinking people are faced with the terror of the demonic cabal controlling America and the world.
"This cabal has corrupted and contaminated the old culture to the point that if we locate our primary being in that culture we'll become as insane and corrupt as they. We have no other recourse than to realize a new culture,” write Livergood and Mairesse.
