A fond recollection of the West’s one-room school houses, this book celebrates an American institution with stories of heroism and perseverance. Illustrated with archival images of classrooms and students, One Room reflects the earnest striving and innocent hopes of pioneers forging communities. Learn about the unsung and yet mythical frontiersmen and women who “civilized” the west, the children who attended one-room schools, and the teachers who faced hardships on the frontier, including blizzards, fires, and teaching the three “R’s.”

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book of the past

My granddaughter (4th grade) loves prairie history and was thrilled to receive this book for Christmas. Her grandmother attended a one-room school house in Nebraska so this book made it even more special.

5.0 out of 5 stars fascinating reading and fun

It is an unusual look back at American history. unique perspective and very interesting. So well written and stories are so fascinating. Kind of read you can pick up and read, put down to pick up again. Highly recommended to anyone who likes a good story or who enjoys history and reading about people.
