Heading West: Life with the Pioneers, 21 Activities. Heading West - Pat McCarthy. Laura was to use these memories much later to write a series of books that children still love today-the Little House books. Like Pa, Laura was a true pioneer with an itchy foot. Itchy Feet and Moving West. She wanted children to understand what pioneer life was like. Laura was 65 years old before her first book, Little House in the Big Woods, was published. She had planned to write one book, but children loved the book and begged her to write more.

But pioneer life was not all hardship. Settlers were able to build lives and communities, and experience a freedom brought on by new possibilities. Readers will find more than 20 activities to help them better understand their pioneering ancestors. Children will churn butter, dip candles, track animals, play Blind Man’s Bluff, create a homestead diorama, and more. And before they finish, readers won’t have just headed west, but back in time as well. In many respects, life in the backwoods and on the prairie was similar to modern life-children attended school and had daily chores, parents worked hard to provide for their families, and communities gathered for church and social events.

Heading West traces the vivid saga of Native American and pioneer men, women, and children from the colonial beginnings of the westward expansion to the last of the homesteaders in late 20th century Alaska. In many respects, life in the backwoods and on the prairie was similar to modern life—children attended school and had daily chores, parents worked hard to provide for their families, and communities gathered for church and social events. But unlike today, pioneers lived against a backdrop of isolation, harsh weather, disease, and even plagues of locust. And for Native Americans, the westward expansion of settlers posed the most direct threat to their centuriesold cultures.

Very informative, yet interesting for children, due to the photographs and fun design of the book. Our tween couldn't put it down - she read it cover to cover the day she received it and is now working through the 21 suggested activities. This book would appeal to anyone interested in pioneer life, Laura Ingalls Wilder books, or the history of our country. It begins with the French and Indian War (1700s) and concludes with a story about the last official homesteader. It also contains a 'resources' section in the back, which lists websites and other books about life on the frontier.
