Synopsis

Amazing World of the Wild West by Peter Harrison

This is a lively book of facts and stories with 10 step-by-step projects inspired by the Wild West. You can see inside a settler's wagon in a fantastic cross-section. It makes interesting reading for 8-12-year-olds at home and school, with over 200 evocative illustrations and photographs that bring the past to life. The story of the American West is one of bravery, hope and hard work, but it is also one of unhappiness and cruelty. This book vividly captures the atmosphere of the Wild West, with photographs from the times, images from the movies, and the real facts. You can discover what life was like for the pioneers who braved the journey across the wilderness, and the Native Americans who were confronted by the newcomers. You can find out what kinds of people went west, how they got there, where they lived, and how they earned their living. There are lots of practical projects to help you to understand this exciting period of history.
