Product Description:

When people hear of the Donner Party, images of cannibalism instantly come to mind, but the story of what happened to the Donners and the other families that traveled with them actually has much more to it. It's the story of a group of pioneers on their way to California who are stranded in the Sierra Nevada Mountains during the heavy snows of 1846. They run short on supplies and must stay determined to realize their dream of reaching California while many die of disease and starvation. In this book, this true story is told through the eyes of Dolly, the beloved doll that belonged to Patty Reed (who was an 8-year-old who made it through the experience alive). The group Patty and her doll were with did not succumb to cannibalism, so there is no mention of it in this book. Follow the Donners and the Reeds as they begin their journey with such hope and promise, struggle and endure so much to reach California, and finally reach their destination completely changed. A fascinating book by Rachel Laurgaard. Several black and white illustrations are included, 144 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel

Introduce children to the fascinating and diverse world in which we live through delightful children’s books. Modeled after the Charlotte Mason philosophy of notebooking, this study focuses on the 4 R’s: reading, reasoning, relating and recording. Skills are age appropriate and gentle to engage and inspire children in the learning process. Geography, cultures, animals, folk tales and fables, music and art, are all covered, as are nature studies, poetry and recipes. Literature rich, the authors also provide additional literature and video resources to go deeper. Volumes are flexible for one semester (4 lessons/week) or one year (2 lessons/week). Beautifully illustrated with vibrant photographs and gorgeous art reproductions for the art studies. Black and white nature drawings are included and reproducible for individual families. Quality art supplies are recommended. Please note that a Japanese notebook, Tsubame, is recommended and sold by Beautiful Feet, but we currently do not offer it. ~ Deanne
