Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
"There is much to learn here, whether for report writing or simple eye-feasting."
School Library Journal
Gr 2-6 A look at pioneer life in the late 18th and early 19th Centuries. Fort New Salem in Salem, West Virginia, attempts to recreate those times in a living history museum. Through succinctly written text and clear black-and-white photographs, the fictional Davis familyPa and Ma, Grandpa and Grandma, young Elizabeth, and older brother Isaacare shown as they go about their daily lives. The story follows them from early morning farmyard chores to the joys of a trading trip to town and a harvest festival. Typical pioneer skills such as soap making, fashioning corn husk dolls, and burning out stumps are demonstrated. Pioneer Children of Appalachia brings a long-ago time within the grasp of young readers and enhances their understanding of pioneers' work and play. One quibble: Were the children (and adults) always that clean performing their strenuous tasks? Anyway, the presentation is inviting and accessible. There is much to learn here, whether for report writing or simple eye-feasting. Katharine Bruner, Brown Middle School Library, Harrison, Tenn.
