About this title:

Synopsis: This book introduces readers to the first inhabitants of the Wild West—Native Americans. Readers will learn about their struggles over land and the historical and heartbreaking Trail of Tears. Through rich text and historic photographs, readers will learn about how life changed for Native Americans when white settlers started moving west. Engaging text explains important people and events, including the Great Sioux War of 1876 and Crazy Horse. “Truth or Myth?” fact boxes shed light on the real experiences of Native Americans while sidebars provide additional opportunities for readers to deepen their reading experience.

From School Library Journal: Gr 3-5-Complex topics related to the Wild West are handled nimbly here, making these volumes manageable for elementary school students. Kudos to the authors for smooth and pithy writing. Terms such as stragglers, all-terrain vehicle, and barbed wire appear in bold to point readers to the glossary if needed. Other terms do not appear in bold but are defined adequately in the text. An Old West motif decorates the backgrounds: pages resemble parchment, and there are silhouettes of cowboys. Most of the illustrations are serviceable paintings. Though the illustrations have captions, often there isn't enough information provided. One illustration has the caption "Colonel Custer stands at center in this famous painting of the Battle of the Little Bighorn," but the painting isn't cited, and it is impossible to spot Custer. Sources for text and illustrations are not cited. VERDICT Not without its hiccups, this series makes history lively and accessible.α(c) Copyright 2011.
