I added this in the General forum:
Hard Times in Paradise is the best one for that - it's fascinating and inspiring to read about the way they all pitched in and worked so hard together to build the homestead. It's available for as little as 68 cents through Amazon! Hard Times in Paradise. Grant didn't learn to read till he was nine years old, by the way!
Here's a great article about them in the Harvard Crimson while two of them were attending Harvard:
Homeschoolers are at home at Harvard
Here's an article by Reed, another of the brothers: The Value of Homeschooling Stories. Intro: "When Reed wrote this at the turn of the century, he had graduated from Harvard, graduated from Yale Law School, and after several interesting jobs, was serving as a staff attorney for the Fair Housing Project of the Washington Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights and Urban Affairs."
I especially enjoyed this comment of his in the article, because my son was one of the teens he's referring to, and I heard from parents later that the panel was the main deciding factor in their decision to go ahead and homeschool their own kids!
"Most memorable was a panel of homeschooling teens who talked about their experiences in homeschooling. The teens were articulate and mature, and they demonstrated a confidence that is absent from most their age. I could see the fear and apprehension evaporating from the parents in the audience who were considering homeschooling their own children. By simply being themselves, these teens were the most effective possible advertisement for homeschooling. It was impossible to watch these kids without considering what our youth would be like if they were all homeschooled."
