From Booklist:

Gr. 4^-6. What was it like growing up in America at a time when your chances were only two in three of reaching adulthood? In part one Toynton examines the lifestyles of five distinct groups of children living in pre^-Civil War days. New England children worked with their families on farms or in villages; children on the plains frontier lived in isolated family units, often facing danger from wildlife and harsh weather; Sioux children lived in nomadic villages that followed the buffalo; homeless immigrant children in big cities faced survival on the streets; and children of slaves in the South could only hope for a better life by being chosen as playmates for the plantation master's children. In the second part, Toynton discusses the daily activities of all these groups, with special emphasis on school, work, play, and reading. Her realistic descriptions will take readers to the heart of each experience. Showing contrasts and similarities between then and now, the book is informative, interesting, and filled with period illustrations that beautifully depict activities and dress. Bibliography; suggestions for further reading. Susan DeRonne
