Product Description:

Immerse yourself in the character and culture of the men and women who conquered the American frontier! Reminiscent of the David Macaulay building and engineering books, the author successfully recreates life on the American frontier with engaging text and first rate, black & white illustrations. Beginning in Jamestown, 1607, you will be transported through the early life and times of America and be introduced to the history of the Germans and Scots in Pennsylvania, the flint lock rifle, building of log cabins, forts, medicine and witchcraft, and what childhood looked like. The author weaves the story of the Seven Year War, the Revolutionary War, Land Ordinances, the Louisiana Purchase and the Northwest exploration. We learn of steam boats, the cotton frontier, early railroads, fur trade, the Oregon Trail, the history of the Mormon Church, stage coaches in California, Civil War and the West, and the Cattle Drives. Each chapter provides abundant illustrations and maps, and interesting text to bring alive the early days of America, this book breathes life into American history studies. Pb, 161 pgs. ~ Deanne
