Synopsis

Avoid Living in a Wild West Town! by Peter Hicks

This is an ideal text for shared and guided reading for Key Stage 2 pupils within the framework of the National Literacy Strategy. It casts the reader in the role of Jim McGuire, marshal of Dustville, and looks at law and order in a violent and dangerous Wild West town in the late 1800s. The cartoon-style illustrations and descriptive text provide an interesting introduction into the lives, jobs, diseases, law and order and entertainments of the good, bad and wild people of the settlement. The narrative approach encourages readers to get involved with the characters and to follow the story through to its conclusion. The book includes handy hints and informative captions designed to keep you out of trouble.
