The Wild Westby Barron's, Claire Aston
Long before the first white settlers, the land shown in this book's illustrations was inhabited by an Indian tribe. Readers turn the pages and see the land transformed by nineteenth-century settlers from the East. Today, it is the site of a thriving fairground. Fast Forward Books are lots of fun! They transform distant events of history into very real, dramatically vivid experiences for young readers. Each title covers one specific place, then, using a series of handsome color-illustrated two-page spreads, shows that place at different times over many centuries. Tabs on page edges label illustrations with a succession of identifying dates, with the final spread showing the title subject's location as it exists today.
