This is a reading guide for the book- You wouldn't want to be an American Pioneer by Jacqueline Morely. The first time I read this book, I thought it would be too baby for my 8th graders. This book is gross and has all kinds of crazy stuff in it that really gets kids interested. I found myself telling them all the stuff in the book. I ended up buying a half class set for them to use. My library system was big enough to get the rest.
