Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Young historians will find this book not only exciting reading but also a well-researched tool to learn about life on the Oregon, California, and Mormon Trails.

Synopsis:

In Stories of Young Pioneers: In Their Own Words, Violet Kimball has collected memoirs, letters, and journal entries of children who were between ages six and nineteen when they made the overland journey. The book is organized by topic — including romance; animals; fun and recreation; danger, disease, and death — and peppered with detailed profiles of individual youngsters. Feel the mixed emotions of thirteen-year-old Kate Scott as she and her family leave the comforts of their home. Sit in the driver's seat with thirteen-year-old teamster John Stoughton as he drives his oxen across rocks, water, sand, and icy mountain passes. Unwind after a long, arduous day by joining in a hand of cards or, better yet, a night of music and dancing. Young historians will find Stories of Young Pioneers not only exciting reading but also a through and well-researched tool to learn about life on the Oregon, California, and Mormon Trails.
