Since discovering the Canadian Flyer, a magical time-traveling sled, in Emily’s attic, Matt and Emily have outrun dinosaurs in the Alberta badlands, panned for gold in the Yukon, and seen the Silver Dart soar high in Nova Scotia's skies. In Pioneer Kids, Emily and Matt arrive on the Canadian Prairies in 1910. They visit a one-room schoolhouse where they try to help a new friend deal with a classroom bully. But when a raging fire erupts, it’s Emily and Matt who need rescuing! In this, the sixth book in the popular Canadian Flyer Adventures series, author Frieda Wishinsky weaves well-researched and accurate historical facts into her compelling, kid-friendly storytelling, while Dean Griffith’s action-packed illustrations situate readers in place and time perfectly. At the end of their adventure Emily and Matt share additional facts about pioneer days, country schools, and prairie fires, and Wishinsky gives additional facts here too, in an informative Q&A format.
