In this adventure, Ms. Bogus' class goes back in time to the pioneer era. They learn (a lot more than they want to!) about he Dust Bowl, sodbusting, Prairie Schooners, and much more while having fun (well mostly!) and return to class smarter, appreciating what they have, and also, a little dustier. Each mystery incorporates history, geography, culture and cliffhanger chapters that keep kids begging for more! Each mystery includes SAT words, educational facts, fun and humor, built-in book club and activities. Each Carole Marsh Mystery also has an Accelerated Reader quiz, a Lexile Level, and a Fountas & Pinnell guided reading level.
