Greenwood introduces the fictional Robertsons and through the family's activities, describes the details of everyday life on the frontier circa 1840. This mix of story and information makes the book a natural for use in whole-language classrooms. Report writers in traditional programs will find useful facts and diagrams tucked in between the fictional segments. Food, clothing, schooling, social life, household equipment, building and more are covered in the wide-ranging text. The detailed black-and-white drawings are both decorative and informative.
