How would life be different if you lived in the 18OOs? No T-shirts or jeans -- youd wear bonnets and petticoats or button-up trousers with suspenders. No cars or buses -- youd walk to your one-room schoolhouse, or ride in a horsedrawn buggy. No TV or video games -- instead, youd spend your evenings playing checkers or doing needlework by candlelight. <P> A group of kids stepped back into the 1800s by going to Kings Landing Historical Settlement. For one week, they occupied a nineteenth-century village, living in a time before electricity, before cars -- even before indoor plumbing! The girls milked cows, churned butter, and spun wool. The boys drove teams of oxen, harvested corn, and fanned the forge at the blacksmiths shop. By journeying back through time, the kids learned valuable lessons about the past -- and their own lives in the present. <P> Susan E. Goodman and Michael J. Doolittle bring history alive in the fourth book of their Ultimate Field Trip series. Through vivid text and photographs, they record an exciting modern adventure in nineteenth-century America.
