Russell Freedman did an exceptional job with this book; it zeroes in on the immigrant children?s? experience of going West as well as the indigenous Indian children's lives before, during and after interaction with the white settlers.
The photos selected were exceptional and eye-opening. My favorite aspect of the photos selected centered on the variety of tribal children photographed. I don't think I will ever forget the two sets of photos of Indian children as they entered Indian Training Schools (schools that taught Indians how to become white) and how they had changed 14 or 15 months later. There was no spark of joy or happiness in any of these ?chosen? children.
Most books talk about the life in the US and the Territories from an adult's perspective. This volume focuses on life amongst the younger population; it is wonderful.

Of all the stories about the pioneers, this is the first one to give a childs perspective, their side of the story. Very informative.
