About the Author
Joan Enders is an educator with a B.A. in English, secondary education and sociology. Once the children entered school, Joan returned to school herself, earning a Master’s of Education in librarianship and educational media. She has had positions as a teacher-librarian at middle school and high school levels, winning substantial grants to further her students’ research skills. Joan is a past recipient of the American Library Association’s Francis Henne Award, which inspired her to move forward implementing reading advocacy, research programs, technology training and author programs for her students. Sharing her expertise with other professionals is a must for Joan, speaking at library, social studies, genealogy and literacy conferences and local genealogical societies and community groups. She contributes articles to professional journals such as The Medium, Book Report and Teacher-Librarian. She also contracts as a webinar trainer of new librarians. She has contributed years of community service through teaching and music and events organization. This is her first book, grown from a successful inquiring learning lesson in American history classes; a culmination of six years of case study research, testing and teaching. When teachers asked how they could possibly replace this learning activity they loved, Joan outlined and created Evidence is Lacking. Yet I Still Hope. She hopes that this encounter with inquiry learning, primary sources and critical thinking sparks the investigator in every history student and history buff. If working with adults in community groups is any indication, readers of history, World War I, and autobiographies will be entranced as were her students. Joan and her husband Jerry are the parents of three daughters, six grandchildren and two granddogs. They are both amazed at having lived in the same city all their married lives.

This book was well put together and a lot of thought went into it. I found myself more engrossed in this book than I thought I would be and it made me want to learn more and do more to discover the past. Well done to the author, and thank you for sharing this with us. I highly recommend this book!
This book was given to me and I chose to review it voluntarily. Everything written is my own opinion and in no way influenced by the author or a 3rd party
