Annotation Uses original source materials to present the settling of the West as experienced by the children of the time. If they had not had families and children, the explorers and pioneers that we know about would not have settled down and established homes in the West. The author portrays life in sod houses, log cabins, and mining towns; the world of nature and animals; and the tragedy of death through the eyes, ears, and emotions of the children. Winner of best nonfiction award from the National Cowboy Hall of Fame and Western Heritage Center.
