Item Description...
Bobbie Kalman, author of the acclaimed Historic Communities and Early Settler Life series, explores the action and adventure that made the West famous. In the latter part of the 19th century, more than half a million pioneers headed west to carve out a future on an unknown frontier. Some were drawn by the offer of cheap land and the promise of religious freedom while others had high hopes of finding gold. Thrilling, authentic photos and full-color illustrations recreate what life was really like for these cowboys, adventurers, and immigrants in this rough-and-ready era in our history.

Authentic photographs help bring to life the early days of The Railroad, a revolution in travel that quickly replaced the wagon train as the fastest, cheapest means to reach the North American West. Children will learn:
-- how the steam engine worked and how tracks were laid
-- who built the railroads and how cultural differences between immigrant workers created prejudice
-- what kind of jobs were performed on the train
-- the different kinds of railway stations
-- how first class travel differed from third class
-- how Native Americans resisted the illegal invasion of the railroad into their territories

More About Bobbie Kalman

Bobbie Kalman Bobbie Kalman is the award-winning author of more than 400 non-fiction books. She established herself as a leading author in children’s non-fiction in the 1980’s and 90’s with two acclaimed series about pioneer life, The Early Settler Life Series (15 titles) and The Historic Communities Series (31 titles), both published by Crabtree Publishing. She has created many of Crabtree’s most popular series, which also include The Native Nations of North America Series (19 titles), The Lands, Peoples, and Cultures Series (93 titles), and The Science of Living Things Series (32 titles), among others.

Born in Hungary in 1947, Bobbie and her family escaped to Austria during the Hungarian Revolution in 1956. The family spent several weeks there as refugees before immigrating to North America.

Bobbie holds degrees in English, Psychology, and Education. She is married and has four children and three grandchildren.
