What was life like in the Old West?
In the mid to late 1800s, thousands of people went out West to search for gold and seek their fortunes. Many Jews traveled by covered wagon or train to try and make a better life for themselves and their families. In this engrossing book, children will learn about the daily life of Jews in the Old West—the homes they lived in, the foods they ate, the work they did, the schools they went to, and the games they played.
Jewish Life in America in the Old West is part of The Way It Was, a series of fascinating books about everyday Jewish life in American history.
Each volume includes authentic photos and eyewitness accounts, as well as engaging text and design.
