Who Settled the West? Life in the Old West Series A Bobbie Kalman Book
This book discusses the reasons people migrated West, the routes they took, some of the difficulties faced by pioneers, the different ethnic and cultural backgrounds of the settlers, and the building of homes and towns.
The settlers had high hopes of finding great fortunes and an easier lifestyle. When they arrived in the West, however, they found that life was more challenging than they had expected. Settling the land took time, and not everyone prospered. However, in the end there were settlements from sea to shining sea.
