The Santa Fe Trail was important in the early development and settlement of the American Southwest. This book offers over 40 pages of comprehensive activities detailing the long and scenic trade route between the Western Territories and the American Midwest. Through an exciting variety of games, puzzles, identification activities, vocabulary recognition, word searches, time lines, art activities, and more, children learn about the overland trail that crossed the vast prairies between Santa Fe, New Mexico and Independence, Missouri. Parents and teachers will find a wealth of ideas on ways of sharing the exciting history of the Old Santa Fe Trail. The author has illustrated this one-of-a-kind book with dozens of informative black and white pictures. Field tested and educator approved, the book provides a wonderful introduction into the romance and excitement of Western U.S. history. * * * * * Walter D.
