Picture the Past

What was it like to live in a colonial town? To travel the Oregon Trail? To fight at the Alamo? This series gives young children a taste of the times. Each 32 pg book covers important aspects of daily life, showing how people made a living, modes of transportation, types of housing, daily duties, methods of education, styles of clothing, and food and drink. Color photographs of reenactments, helpful drawings, and reprints of paintings or engravings add interest to the large-print text. Quite well done.
