Product Description:

Imagine getting a glimpse into life 200 years ago, back when most of America was unsettled wilderness. Discovered in an old house was the diary Noah Blake, and it affords us this opportunity. Most of this well-researched book is fiction, written as the author believes the conversation went, decorated with beautiful drawings of various implements and scenes. A good deal of the book talks about various aspects of the pioneer's life, from the tools they used to the scarcity of glass to the difficulty of simply raising a bridge. Scattered throughout the text are excerpts from his diary, enabling you to see from his eyes the progression of the years, the building of the bridge, and falling in love with a neighbor girl. Journal entries are scarcer then I would like, but the author more than makes up with his attention to detail and his vivid reconstruction of sentences and events. ~ Mark

Is this for student to read on their own or as a parent to read to student?
A shopper on Sep 20, 2021
BEST ANSWER: That probably depends a lot on the individual student and their age/happiness-in-reading level. :) My 15 y/o read it last year as part of a CM-style American history course. She feels like her 10 y/o brother could easily read it for himself, as it contains a lot of pictures. Since it also presents quite a lot of information, though, she feels he wouldn't be likely to remember everything, but he could manage the reading. Hope that's helpful!

A read we look forward to
My boys enjoy learning how a boy lived in the 1800s. They like the drawings and descriptions of how to take care of an axe, build a ladder, make nails... and we are only a few chapters in. Very informative.
