Reviewed by Michelle Stanley for Readers' Favorite Can you imagine growing up during The Great Migration era or The Wagon Trail of 1843, as it was mainly called? If You Were Me and Lived in… the American West: An Introduction to Civilizations Throughout Time is a children’s educational book by Carole P. Roman. Farms were destroyed by floods in the mid-west, causing farmers to relocate in search of better farmlands. Their conastogas (covered wagons) were mostly packed with surplus supplies for the five-month trip. A trail guide took them on the long, unfamiliar and challenging Oregon Trail. There were often illnesses and wagons got stuck in the mud. Children viewed the journey as an adventure, despite having chores like fetching water and collecting smelly buffalo chips for fires. What an exciting way to learn history! Carole P. Roman takes us back in time to an important era that changed lives forever. If You Were Me and Lived in… the American West: An Introduction to Civilizations Throughout Time, Volume 10 is a remarkable book that educates children in a fun way. The illustrations are convincing and knowing what was eaten on the trail is interesting. You’ll learn about Indian tribes, and there is a nice glossary explaining uncommon words and their pronunciations. The Famous People of the West section includes photos of Annie Oakley, Buffalo Bill, and Red Cloud. Maybe kids have ancestors who were part of The Wagon Trail, and their families still live on the Oregon farms that were eventually established. This novella is part of an award-winning series that’s highly recommended.
