This book describes every aspect of pioneer life. It also focuses on how pioneers in Minnesota combined their culture from Sweden, Germany, or Norway with the American culture they were encountering. Sections also focused on Dakota and Objiway life, and on the ways it changed.

Even for someone who hasn't read any American Girl books, Welcome to Kirsten's World, 1854 is a fun glimpse into a different time. It includes such topics as arriving on the frontier from the East or another country, building and working on the homestead, social activities and courtship, life as a Dakota, toys and clothing, other immigrants on the frontier, and conflict between the Dakota and the settlers. There are plenty of visuals, each accompanied by a brief caption or explanation that invites the reader to imagine life in 1854 Minnesota. I especially enjoyed the sections about what immigrants might have brought from their homelands and how pioneers and Dakota lived from season to season.
