Wild West Show: Favorite Reads

These books supplemented our unit study based on "Danger at the Wild West Show!" (an American Girl book)

highly recommended; incredible pictures and good, solid information about sharp-shootin' and rodeo gals from the past; a good springboard for learning more about other "Roses"

Read this book early on in the unit study. It describes horses, cowboy/cowgirl clothes, etc. so that the book's Wild West terms will make more sense to your student.

Read about the childhood of the original "Little Sure Shot!" (Plus, I drew a Paper Dali of her to use.)

Learn more about the tribe of Sitting Bull, the inspiration for the book's White Bear.
