Join twelve–year–old Sam Butler and his nine–year–old sister, Liz, on the American frontier in 1843. Discover the hard work, fun, and adventure of their daily lives, and along the way learn how to play games, make toys and crafts, and perform everyday activities just like Liz and Sam.

Use clay to create your own pottery and design a string of African trade beads, or learn the Native American art of sandpainting. You can even make your own holiday decorations out of dough or pinecones––if you′re not too busy playing tangram, a Chinese puzzle game, or a beanbag target game.

Pioneer Days is filled with interesting bits of historical information and fun facts about growing up in days gone by. Discover how different––and how similar––life was for American kids in history.

Pioneer Days introduces Liz and Sam Butler, two children living with their parents on the western frontier. Modern children will follow Liz and Sam through the year 1843, and along the way they'll do all the things the Butler kids did. They'll make pioneer "fast food", play games from the 1800s, learn crafts taught to Liz and Sam by their Native American and African-American neighbors, make pioneer toys and holiday decorations, and much more. Packed with historical information, this book lets kids discover for themselves what life was like for the children of the early settlers.
