Overview

Pioneer Church by Carolyn B. Otto, Megan Lloyd, Megan Lloyd

The promise of religious freedom compelled many European men and women to undertake the arduous journey to the New World. The church was a crucial part of the first communities established, serving as meeting place, school, and even as makeshift hospital. Most important, the church was a place where people were free to worship as they pleased.

Based on the history of a real church in Brickerville, Pennsylvania, Pioneer Church is the story of one of the first American churches and the community that built it in the 1700's. Accessible text and striking art give young readers a glimpse of Americana in a time when freedom of religion was not taken for granted.
