    Full of colorful artwork and photos as well as black & white illustrations, vocabulary tidbits, maps, and biographical sketches, it is skillfully formatted into an appealing and engaging text. Each of the 28 chapters (i.e. weekly lessons) have text interspersed with Narration Breaks (place to stop and recount orally the information that has been covered) and questions: "Ready to Explore".Each chapter ends with a two-page photo montage (a feature I love) that pertains to the chapter's focus. For instance, there is a collection of Native American dwellings each with short informational captions inAmerica's Story.

    This historical romp through the middle ages is rather the opposite of the Famous Men book for the same period. Instead of looking at certain persons, this book steps back and looks at the collective whole of medieval life in Britain. And, yes, he runs into some of those famous men along the way. Chapters cover groups of individuals – peasants, minstrels, outlaws, monks, philosophers, knights, damsels, and kings. Investigating each, the author describes in generalities, and then cites specifics in terms of people and events. Frankly, the information is fascinating in its breadth and provides a number of surprises, such as the amount of belongings owned by some peasants or the degree of openness in communication concerning sexual acts. There are two sets of full-color art reproductions depicting various aspects of life in the medieval time period (defined, by the way, as from 1066 – the Norman conquest – through 1536 – Henry VIII's suppression of the monasteries). Please note that the target audience is older than the Famous Men books and some content is more graphic than you might expect. Also, at least one of the paintings features a (captive) female nude. 224 pgs, pb ~ Janice

      In Colt Express, 2-6 players become true outlaws of the Wild West, gearing up to relieve a train (and its passengers) of valuables. The “board” is a realistic, 3D cardboard locomotive and train cars. Each game plays over the course of five rounds, with 3-5 turns per round. Players plan each round’s heist by playing action cards one at a time to a common pile for each “turn.” Actions consist of Moving (up or down), Looting, Shooting, Punching (to relieve other bandits of their valuables), and Moving the Marshal. At the end of the round, the deck is flipped over and players take turns carrying out the actions they planned at the round’s beginning. Not everything always goes according to plan! Certain turns require that cards are placed face-down; others change turn order and even allow multiple actions in one turn. So, players will often find themselves in over their heads, being forced to take actions that no longer make any sense! As chaotic as it is simple, this uniquely thematic game is perfect for family game nights. Winner of the 2015 Spiel des Jahres (Game of the Year) award. 2-6 Players; 40 minutes.

    Players take turns flipping over cards and reading the short phrases which are composed of high frequency words to reinforce sight word recognition and fluency. Each player can flip over as many words as they want to in a turn, and they can choose to stop when they like (and take the cards they've collected) – but if you flip over an outlaw, you lose the pile! Whoever collects the most cards, wins!

       The Westerns I grew up watching idealized the Wild West: raw and romantic. The reality on the western side of the Rockies was raw, but as wide open and unpredictable and dangerous as the country they traveled. The law and the unlawful fought over cattle and gold, to be “the law” and just to survive. These 31 chapters use thorough research, sketches and period photographs to tell the stories of the law men and criminals—sometimes not too different from each other—who fought to civilize Western Colorado in the late 1800s. Note: Events portrayed are “unveiled” and some photos represent the 1800s trend of photographing deceased as though still alive. 153 pp, sc. ~ Ruth

    Explore some unique history from during the time Spain ruled portions of the western United states. Starting in the late 1700s, the Spanish government gave their former soldiers use of large areas of land for ranchos. These areas eventually produced much wealth (as the result of the lucrative and wasteful hide trade) and, as a result, became the source of many legends and stories, particularly between the 1830s and 1840s. The introductory chapters (Part 1) explain rancho life. Then, Part 2 tells a different story from each of 8 different ranchos, such as a mistake that brought about a fortune; a rancho attacked by a pirate; and how a long-dead outlaw reclaims a treasure. A significant aspect of Californian history, but also an important part of the development of the US. This volume does not coordinate with Hands-on History Projects as do the other Tales & Treasures. 7 x 10, 127 pp, hc.  ~ Ruth
