Wagon Trains and Settlers by Ellen H, M.Ed. TodrasAbout the SeriesAction-packed and meticulously researched, with specially-commissioned illustration, detailed reconstructions and original artwork from each period, reading lists, and resources for further study, this series is an immersive introduction to the history that shaped America.
With today's the coast-to-coast connectivity, it is hard for young readers to imagine exactly how difficult and dangerous it was to set out by wagon to settle the West during the great migration of the 1800's. Using original photographs and archival material from the period, along with dynamic illustration and imaginative, historically accurate writing, this book explains the experiences, difficulties, and dangers faced by those early settlers. From daily life on the wagon train, to resupplying at forts, confrontations with Indians, treacherous mountain crossings, and constant struggle, this book gives contemporary readers a glimpse of the enormous challenges of America's Westward Expansion. At the back a complete timeline, glossary, and resources for further exploration will help young readers take their learning beyond the book as they imagine what life was like for those first settlers.
-page spreads, enhanced with photographs, color illustrations, reproductions, artifacts, maps, and sidebars, introduce each topic in detail. . . . All titles give careful consideration to Native American history, highlighting their displacement, noting that colonists and Indians often attacked each other, and emphasizing that more settlers died of disease than from attacks. A glossary, time line, and suggested books and websites add to this series
. . . . The content is interesting and pithy. . . . Great resource for reports and good reading for children interested in hte specific periods and places. TucsonCitizen.com (Shelf Life)This volume, part of the All About America se
