School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 4-6-Although about one-third of the volume's 19 double-page chapters are about a frontier fort, there is a lot of additional information to be found here. If students want to know what fort soldiers did besides parade around and chase Indians, how a soddy was built, what a woman's work day consisted of, how the transcontinental railroad was constructed, how a buffalo was butchered-it's all here, and it's all accessible and reinforced with clear, detailed, full-color illustrations. ``Fort Facts'' and ``Famous Frontier Folks'' are appended. A treasure on the topic, and on sometimes unexpected but always related subtopics.-George Gleason, Department of English, Southwest Missouri State University, Springfield
