More About This Book

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Carson was a brave man who was not afraid to try new things. Known as one of the greatest frontiersmen who ever lived, Carson was known because of his explorations in the Western United States, especially in the Rocky Mountain area. He also fought bravely during the Mexican and Civil Wars, ending his career as a Brigadier General in the Army. The textbook contains a table of contents, glossary, index, a section that lists more books to read, as well as information about places to visit to learn more about Kit Carson. The textbook contains many historical drawings, paintings, and photographs that give life and excitement to the text. Elements such as drawings of beaver traps and wagon trails teach the student about the culture of the time, while paintings such as "The Trapper's Bride" and the fight of the Californios teach children about the social aspects of the time. Besides being a book about life as a frontiersman, Native American culture and issues of the time are also discussed. An American history classroom would benefit by using this book. Part of the "American Lives" series. 2004, Heinemann Library, Ages 8 to 10.
