This was an extremely disappointing box. It had a mediocre book in it, that wasn't even historically accurate, and a bunch of little tchotchkes to just collect dust. Part of what the subscriber received in the box was a donation made to an organization. No problems with donating to charity, but not as part of the subscription box. This was supposed to be a Mother's Day gift, but overall was just an embarrassment. She has one more coming, since we did a six month subscription, but I'll be doing something else for her this week instead.

Holly,
Thank you for your review and your thoughts. We appreciate that you gifted the Backpacker Fiction selection. We apologize you thought the book was not historically accurate. In our experience fiction books even historical fictions books are not 100% historically accurate. If you prefer to switch your second shipment to the non-fiction selection please contact us and we will be happy to do so. We do try to fully describe what is included in our box and why each item is chosen to help people understand what they are receiving. We also try to make clear that donating to charity and sourcing items from businesses that donate to charity is the foundation of our company. We are thankful that the box you chose to gift...

The box was way over priced for the money. I’m all about donating but a little more effort should have been put in.
