Fifteen-year-old Lark has been taught how to rewire a truck and gut a fish, but she doesn’t know the branches of government, the continents on the globe, or really how to read. Lark lives in rural Montana with her conspiracy-theorist-Doomsday-prepping parents who homeschool her. When Lark gets her first period and realizes she doesn’t even know how much she doesn’t know, she takes advice from a friend on a nearby farm and secretly goes to school for the first time. At high school, Lark finds out the world is very different than she has been told, from 9/11 conspiracies to government takeovers that never happened. The more she learns, the more determined Lark is to expand her worldview. But it won’t come without sacrifices.

In Truth and Honour learn what made Gerald Ford the right man for the job. Backmatter includes a letter from the Ford family and a timeline.

There are certain moments in history that are so significant that they become Turning Points, moments that put a bookmark in time and cause the events that follow to be measured by a different standard.

This series puts each event in its historical context and follows the trajectory of its immediate aftermath and continuing global effects today. A timeline of important events adds further historical context, while ôPointing Outö side bars present related topics and perspectives.
