Dozens of fun, hands-on projects and activities from frontier days.
Join twelve-year-old Tom, his eleven-year-old sister, Amy, and their little brother, Tad, in Wyoming Territory in 1878. Share the fun, adventure, and hard work of daily life in the Wild West. You'll discover exciting games, make toys and crafts, and perform everyday activities just like Tom, Amy, and Tad.
Make your own ranch-style scrambled eggs and cook up a batch of delicious sourdough flapjacks. Paint an Acoma bowl, build a model pueblo, make a pioneer cap to wear, or weave a basket from a few simple materials. You can twist together a lariat to wear as a belt, or practice knot tying--that is, if you have time after the mustang-and-cowboys board game or the party pi?ata project.

Now the kids of today can walk in the boots of wranglers of the Wild West. This new activity-packed addition to the American Kids in History Series transports readers to a cattle ranch near Cheyenne, deep in the Wyoming territory of the 1870s. They'll join 12-year-old Tom as he goes on his first cattle drive, and 11-year-old Amy as she helps the bronco busters tame the horses. Learning history has never been so hands-on--or so much fun!About the Author:
