Life on a Wagon Train
What You Didn't Know About History
Readers set out on a cross-country adventure with emigrants on a wagon train in this book--but they shouldn't expect an ordinary journey. Including the many pairs of shoes that the travelers wore through and if children had to go to school, readers will learn surprising details about the trying life on a wagon train. Historical illustrations and photographs support accessible content that moves beyond what's learned in the social studies classroom. Fact boxes give readers even more opportunities to learn about the hardy emigrants and their habits, food, and fun.
