Review
(The following is a combined review for Diary of Carrie Berry: A Confederate Girl; Diary of William Bircher: A Civil War Drummer; Diary of Charlotte Forten: A Free Black Girl Before the Civil War; Diary of Sarah Gillespie: A Pioneer Farm Girl; Diary of Sallie Hester: A Covered Wagon Girl; Diary of Sally Wister: A Colonial Quaker Girl; and ) Gr 3 – 5 — In this lively collection, pivotal historical periods are told in the words of young people who lived through them. Each book begins with a two-page introduction that places the diary and its author in a broader historical context. The youthful perspective is refreshing and, at times, unexpected. The bulk of the content is made up of the diary excerpts, while editorial sidebars expand on things mentioned in the diaries. For instance, Sally Wister mentions "Hessians" in a diary entry, while an adjacent sidebar explains who the Hessians were and what they did. The illustrations are made up of well-reproduced photographs, drawings, and maps. A useful and new take on history. --Jennifer Prince (Reviewed April 1, 2014) (School Library Journal, vol 60, issue 4, p70)
