The excerpt for the diaries by pioneer children will both charm you and help you realize the hardships these children went through. The information in each chapter will get you in touch with what life was like for these children.
But this isn't just a history book. There are patterns for the quilts and other projects that are related to the aspects of pioneer life described. All of Kathleen Tracy's patterns include clear and complete instructions so that even a beginner can make these lovely little quilts.
Some of the patterns would be perfect for a child making his or her first quilt. Others could be a joint mother and child project. But of course grown ups will have a wonderful time making this quilts either for the children in their life, for their doll collection or just for fun.
The book contains professional photographs and easy-to-follow instructions for 14 quilts.
Could you get more historical information from other books? Of course, and in fact there is an extensive bibliography in the back of this book that points you in the direction of more sources for what life was like for pioneer children. However, with this book, Ms. Tracy whets your appetite for learning about the lives of "prairie children", as she calls them, and presents "14 Little Projects That Honor the Pioneer Spirit". Like her other books, this is a fun read that also includes some cute little projects to try. I highly recommend it.
