About This Book
Hostile Indians, bad weather, and rancid food are only a few of the reasons why it was tough to be an American pioneer.
This delightful series brings something unusual to the study of history: humor. "You Wouldn't Want to..." revels in the darker side of life in ancient times. The reader is on center stage as he or she gets a tour through life as a slave, warrior, explorer — even a mummy! Hilarious illustrations, captions, and sidebars leave no doubt that you simply wouldn't want to be there.
Perfect resource for reluctant readers with:
• humor and history tied to curriculum
• entertaining sidebars to pique reader's curiosity
• comprehensive glossary to support content
• index to make navigating subject matter easier
