Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“Crafts, recipes, songs, and games teamed with an engaging text will have young readers convinced that they’re just having fun.”  —School Library Journal
School Library Journal
Gr 3-6-This unique book brings to life the days of the Old West. Crafts, recipes, songs, and games teamed with an engaging text will have young readers convinced that they're just having fun. The book is organized by the major waves of western movement, from the early explorers in 1804 to the trail drives of the 1880s. Carlson's clear and concise writing includes amusing stories and bits of trivia that will keep kids interested. Each chapter is packed with projects that will give them a taste of daily life. Students might construct field books like those used by Lewis and Clark, or they might make root beer like the settlers. Each activity includes easy-to-follow instructions and informative line drawings. A book that will be heavily used by teachers in the classroom and by children at home.-Paula A. Kiely, Milwaukee Public Library, WI
