What was life really like for the millions of settlers who moved to the North American prairie in the late 1800s? Pioneers on the Prairie tells their story. It is a story of hardship, survival and courage. It also tells what happened to the ‘Indians’ – the Native American tribes that lived on the prairie before the pioneers arrived. At a deeper level, the book will help you think about the courage of all people who journey to create a new home – settlers, pioneers, migrants and refugees.
