A Pioneer Sampler
The Daily Life of A Pioneer Family in 1840Book - 1995
In an unusual blend of fiction and nonfiction, A Pioneer Sampler chronicles one year in the lives of the imaginary Robinson family. The stories illuminate not only pioneer farm life, but situations-dealing with the school bully, competition between siblings-that occur in any era. Illustrated historical notes enlarge on the social history and describe activities related to the stories, from operating a grist mill and arranging a country store to spinning wool and making butter. Barbara Greenwood and Heather Collins cover an enormous range of subjects, for a complete and involving look at a historical period and a way of life.
