Voices of the Western Frontier
Voices of the Western Frontier is about 15 people between 1806 and 1900 who explored the frontier. Each page is a picture and writing from a different person in history. We meet real people, like Sacagawea and Annie Oakley, as well as made up people like a little girl on the Oregon Trail, a merchant, a cowboy, a boy on his first train ride and a sheriff in Kansas. Each person describes what their life is like, what they might see or do, and what is like in the frontier.
I liked Voices of the Western Frontier because it is showing the history of our country from people who lived during that time. I thought it was neat that there was a cowboy who is driving his herd of longhorns up the Chisholm Trail, since a part of the Chisholm Trail is only a few minutes from my house in Texas. I really liked the map so show where each person is located in the United States, I kept flipping back and forth to the map while I was reading each page.
I liked this book best when my mom read it to me since there was a lot of writing. I think other kids would like this book, especially if they are learning about the history.
