Synopsis: Describes the history of westward expansion from the point of view of minorities and women.
From School Library Journal:
Grade 5-8-On the title page, The Move West leaps out at readers-and may mislead them. Whatever is meant by "Multicultural Portrait" is not made clear in the text, as the content is pretty standard information about westering whites doing in Indians. Specifics of dates, places, and people are needed to complete the portrait. "Overland Migrations" between 1840-1860 are mentioned; and unwary readers may learn that "Some people [traveled] to California on huge clipper ships, by way of the Panama Canal...." (The Canal was completed in the early 1900s). Mining is mentioned, but the treatment is skimpy-and chiefly of the Gold Rush days, when "mining" was more gold-gathering than shaft or excavation mining. Because of misleading or confusing statements, much of the first four chapters is unreliable as history. One chapter, "Indians Lose Their Sacred Lands," is well done. Illustrations throughout vary in effectiveness: some are merely decorative, some have scant or poor captions, and those accompanied by cameo explanations are used to good effect.
