The world's most famous collection of children's stories began as an academic study for adults, when Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm collected German folklore in the 1800s. The story of Cinderella, for example, appeared in ancient China and in ancient Egypt. The story of Cinderella that appears in Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm’s collection of German folktales, first published in 1812, might shock those familiar with today’s version of a scullery maid turned princess.

The history of childhood has been a topic of interest in social history since the highly influential book Centuries of Childhood, published by French historian Philippe Ariès in 1960. He argued "childhood" as a concept was created by modern society. Ariès studied paintings, gravestones, furniture, and school records. He found before the 17th-century, children were represented as mini-adults.

Cattle drives were a major economic activity in the 19th and early 20th century American West, particularly between 1850s and 1910s. In this period, 27 million cattle were driven from Texas to railheads in Kansas, for shipment to stockyards in Louisiana and points east. The long distances covered, the need for periodic rests by riders and animals, and the establishment of railheads led to the development of "cow towns" across the frontier.

Her of course meant that they could not possibly imagine she would have had a child with someone who was not a valued participant in the war to save the human race. Best of all, no one could question the absence of a father who might be deep in the reaches of the Kuiper Belt, years of travel away from Earth. And now that Battle School had been refitted as Fleet School, accepting only children who were part of an off-Earth family, why would she refrain from the obvious step of submitting his DNA so he would qualify? Because it was all a lie. Perhaps Mother knew perfectly well who Dabeet’s father was, and what Latin American hamlet or city he was hiding in.

In Teddy's Cattle Drive, Marc Simmons tells the story of E. C. "Teddy" Abbott, an eleven-year-old Nebraska boy whose first cattle drive takes place during the 1870s. Teddy's father purchases a herd of beef cattle in Texas and reluctantly allows his son to accompany him to Texas to drive the cattle to their ranch in southeastern Nebraska along the Chisholm Trail. After arriving in Texas, his father decides to take the train back to Nebraska instead of accompanying the Longhorns north, leaving Teddy in the care of the sage trail boss, Vito Cross, whom Teddy wants to impress.

Teddy is thrust into cowboy life with few skills and is forced to use his own ingenuity to learn the traits necessary for living on the trail. Teddy helps prepare the meals and wrangle loose horses during the day. Before the cattle drive reaches Nebraska, Teddy has worked hard to prove his worth to the band of experienced cowboys and most of all, to his father. Ronald Kil's illustrations add another dimension to Simmons's descriptions of Teddy's cattle trail adventures.

This was beautifully illustrated and really shows kids how life was on the cattle trail. There are great examples of how life worked on the trail as well as a fun story of Teddy, who is a kid on his first cattle drive.

I just found it a bit sad that because the historic source material was based on an actual person (which is good), the story was set in Texas, when all those involved in the project from the author to the illustrator to the publisher - were all more closely associated with New Mexico! And although I realize that historically more cattle drives went through Texas than New Mexico, I just find it odd that New Mexico authors, illustrators and publishers are creating a book set in Texas.

I recently read the original story upon which this children's book is based and I would like to compliment the author on an excellent adaption. I also write about the Old West and one of my own goals is to introduce children to that period of history. I hope I can make the stories as interesting as Marc Simmons did in his book.

Teddy Abbott was a real person from England who settled in Nebraska in the 1870s and raised cattle which had to be driven to market. Simmons tale of a son of his also named Teddy taking part in a cattle drive is imaginary. But it portrays all of the aspects of a real cattle drive from types of individuals involved in one through a day's activities and potential dangers during it. All the men, including Teddy, have different responsibilities. Teddy's responsibility along with another cowboy is taking care of the "remuda," "a Spanish used used in Texas for a herd of spare horses," as the book's glossary notes. Because of an accident to his partner, Teddy ends up watching over the remuda on is own. The potential danger of a stampede comes to pass with a lightening strike frightening the herd of cattle; which sets the horses of the remuda to running off as well. But Teddy stays with them and brings all the spare horses back to the drive. After the drive, Teddy is given a pair of spurs in a simple ceremony attended by all of the cowboys he had worked with. Not only a story of a rite of passage for a young boy, Simmons' story is notable for its specifics on a cattle drive.
