Summary

Sterling Storiesis a collection of very short stories written by a diverse collection of authors. The twelve-piece anthology was carefully designed to maximize reading and writing abilities using a rich and diverse literature collection. The anthology begins with a sample lesson introducing reading skills, note-taking, and literary terms.
