About the Author:

Laurie Carlson is the author of Colonial Kids, More Than Moccasins, Green Thumbs, and Kids Camp! She has taught preschool, primary grades, and children’s art classes. She lives in Cheney, Washington.

From Booklist:

Gr. 4^-6. Carlson gives a brief history of the North American westward movement as a framework for introducing more than 50 appropriate activities, which are presented chronologically and thematically and include projects involving exploration, fur trading, the gold rush, homesteading, and cowboys. Activities range from the very simple (making notepaper decorated with an Appaloosa motif) to the complex (hooking a rag rug); most have very clear directions. A few ideas (panning for gold) will be impractical for most readers; some (Lewis and Clark's journal and field book, a trapper's journal, and a young girl's travel diary) are repetitive; but most (especially the recipes for portable soup and root beer and the explanations of measuring land for townships and homesteads) will be of interest. Black line drawings and frequent sidebars help break up the text and further clarify the instructions. Although not a first choice, this will be useful for American history studies. Kay Weisman
