Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In an unusual blend of fiction and nonfiction, A Pioneer Sampler chronicles one year in the lives of the Robinson family. Illustrated historical notes enlarge on the social history and describe activities related to the stories, from churning butter to predicting the weather. Young readers are invited to try their hand at these tasks to experience a bit of pioneer life.

About the Author

Barbarba Greenwood worked at a historical museum churning butter, spinning thread, and embroidering cloth before writing A Pioneer Sampler. She currently lives in Canada.
