This one's another brief peek into life in Colonial America. In this case, a farm hand nearing the end of his indenture describes what it's like working for a farmer in 1766 Pennsylvania. The descriptions are to the point, aided by line drawings, and the character of the farm hand adds a nice personal touch. If your kid is studying Colonial times, this is one book to check out.
