Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Imagine yourself living in the 1840's and en route to a new home in the relatively unexplored American West. Your journey to your new homestead would include great hazards and effort. If you were heading to the Far West you could spend six months traveling the over 1800 miles you have to cover. Much of that distance would be traveled on foot so that the oxen or horses that pull your wagon could actually survive the trip. In the end, if you and your family survived the migration, you would then have to expend an enormous amount of energy to build a new home, clear land, and plant crops. All in all, the journey west was one marked by both adventure and tremendous human suffering. Author Ellen Galford presents a truly unique perspective on this 19th century American emigration. This is a fascinating book that utilizes artwork from the 19th century to analyze the American saga of westward migration. Galford not only presents artwork but also highlights specific details of the selected paintings to show how people lived during those distant days. This results in a wonderful book. Youngsters who are interested in history, social studies, or art will find this a book they will treasure. 2005, Two-Can Publishing, Ages 10 to 14.

School Library Journal
Gr 5-7-Art and history meld with entertaining and successful results. Trail takes readers through American westward expansion, from the 1840s to the introduction of railroads. The second title discusses knighthood, the peasantry, war, deer hunting, and so on. Throughout each book, a painting complements the topic under discussion. Then, the image is taken apart bit by bit. For example, the French 15th-century painter Jean Fouquet's Death of Clothar I and the Division of His Kingdom illustrates a fortified city. The entire composition is shown, with the dying king easy to overlook. On the next spread, where that section of the painting is viewed as a separate entity, the dagger in Clothar's neck is apparent. In both of these oversized books, framed sidebars offer biographical information about the artists; time lines handily sum up the years covered and include black-and-white miniatures of the paintings. These unique, well-thought-out titles are good for reports, and browsers would enjoy them, too.-Anne Chapman Callaghan, Racine Public Library, WI Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
