“We, the primeval forest felling; Wew, the rivers stemming; vexing we, and piercing deep the mines within; We, the surface broad surveying, we the virgin soil upheaving; Pioneers – O Pioneers.” [pg. 4].

This fun little instructional book was authored by Katharine R. Crowell and published in New York by The Willett Press in 1908. Its approximately 100 pages provide a succinct juvenile educational lesson on the important role played by pioneers in American history.

Brief descriptions of each period of development are accompanied by a Leader’s Supplement that includes sample questions, practice exercises, recitations, and more. The book also includes a series of folding pictorial frontispieces that, when turned, highlight the growth of the nation.
