Synopsis

Voices of the Western Frontier by Sherry Garland

Sherry Garland created the Voices Series to provide personal narratives of moments in America's past, and her newest addition does just that. Her thorough research provides a background to the compelling narratives on every page as readers meet the explorers and settlers who extended the frontier to the western coastline. Garland narrates in historical voices, including Sacagawea and Annie Oakley. She fleshes out the timeline with characters representing whole populations, including a Santa Fe merchant, a gold prospector, a Pony Express rider, and a Chinese railroad worker. Artist Julie Dupre Buckner carefully researched the historical details for her evocative illustrations, furthering the storyline and reinforcing the emotional connection to the chronicle.
