Gr 4-6Like Silvermans Just Listen to This Song Im Singing: African American History through Song (Millbrook, 1996), this book presents a multidisciplinary approach to American history, this time combining pioneer music with a narration about Westward expansion. Included are 12 songs, ranging from the familiar (Sweet Betsy from Pike and Home on the Range) to the obscure (Mississippi Song). Each chapter includes a song, two to three pages of background history, and black-and-white drawings or reproductions. Sidebars list recommended records (not tapes or CDs). Cataloged as a 782.4, this may need booktalking and would be an excellent introduction to units on pioneer life. Documentation is exemplary.Linda Beck, Indian Valley Public Library, Telford, PA
