As the 13 colonies grew, they prospered with new industries and trade. However, some of these trades, like tanning animal hides, were unpleasant. In fact, from slaves and indentured servants, to "mad hatters" and risk-taking whalers, jobs in the colonies could be downright horrible! Readers will delight in viewing the colonial world through a different lens while they continue to learn about life in early America. Enhanced by detailed images, the social studies content augments classroom learning through true, though sometimes disgusting, facts and examples of making a living in the 13 colonies.
