Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Good Book to Accurately Portray History  Feb 14, 2010
I, too, thought this book was more deserving of bad reviews. It is not an action-packed, suspensful book, so if one is looking for that, this is not the book to read. I read this book for a course in graduate school and thought it would be appropriate to read to children to teach them about what frontier life was really like. I also think it's a keystone book to use to teach about internal conflict, as this book was centered on a large internal conflict. Finally, I think it's an easier-to-read book because it focuses mainly on one character's point of view, thoughts, and actions. There are other characters with whom Ann interacts, but the book focuses mainly on Ann.
Stands the test of time  Nov 24, 2008
I loved this book as a kid in the 70's and was thrilled to find it in a used bookstore. I wanted my daughter to read it but she was too busy with other books and just recently got into the Twilight series. Well one day she forgot her book for reading time in school and had to get this one out of her backpack, that I had put in there just in case, because if you come to school without a reading book you get a "ding". Well, when I picked her up she told me she had started the book at school as she had forgot her other one. The next words out her mouth were "Mommy it is so good I love it". Wow, I actually felt my heart warm. See, I told you so. You should always listen to your mother!!!
An Excellent Historical Fiction Book for 4th Grader  Feb 25, 2008
Needed to find an interesting "historical fiction" selection for daughter's 4th grade book report. She could relate to the main character, a young girl her age.
This captured her attention right away, and made the project much easier on all.
A great intro for the younger reader...  Apr 5, 2006
I actually chose this book to read for a graduate level children's literature class. As a school teacher I feel this is a wonderful easy read for children beginning to tackle the longer chapter books.

Ann Hamiltion is the main character, in which girls who are about 10 years old, could relate to. The entire Hamilton family seems to have embraced their new life out west except for Ann. She longs for her friends and old life she has left behind. There are not any girls who are Ann's age for her to spend time with and not many neighbors nearby. Ann is left to tend to her new vegetable garden and help her mother with chores around the home and care for her new baby brother. Ann tries to pass the days by writing in her journal. There are a few travelers that pass through town along with some surprises that make the days more exciting for Ann and her family.

The descriptions of the setting are very vivid and helps the reader to really imagine what is going on. This story would be a terrific read-aloud for children who are being introduced to historical fiction or for children who are interested in the pioneer days. It is a great way to show children what life was like in pioneer days, especially for children in the 8-12 year old age group.
A Alsome Book  Jan 6, 2006
I really liked The Cabin Faced West a lot. The 10 year old girl named Ann was one of the main charters, along with a little boy who lived down the street. The problem they faced was Ann's family moving from the East to the West. I liked the book because she was my age. She also had lots of sibling, but they did not really talk about her siblings in the book. It was a good book because there were many exciting parts of the book. Like a tea party, when George Washington comes and when she meets a boy. That's why you should read it!
