For along the Santa Fe Trail, Lewis and Papa find more than an adventure. Hats off to Jon van Zyle in this; his illustrations are soft and beautifully rich in color and life. They're a little Impressionistic, which I wouldn't have expected with this subject matter, but somehow it works.

Lewis and his family live in a sturdy, stone house along the Wisconsin River. One day, a traveler happens by and spins stories about the Santa Fe Trail. And so begins Lewis and Papa's adventure. Set against the dramatic backdrop of the American West, Barbara Joosse, too, spins a gripping tale about fathers and sons; courage and tenderness; about the coming of age of a nation and the coming of age of a boy. For along the Santa Fe Trail, Lewis and Papa find more than an adventure. Amidst the buffalo stampedes and coyotes, the dark clouds of dust and heat, Lewis learns that being a man is more than bulging muscles and strength, and Papa learns that being tender is sometimes the most courageous act of all. Historically accurate details, illustrated maps, and a glossary of terms make this richly illustrated, poignant tale a coming of age story that will stir the minds and hearts of readers.

Lewis and Papa: Adventure on the Santa Fe Trail is about a father and son traveling west in the 1820s, headed for Santa Fe to sell a wagon full of goods. But it's really an excellent glimpse into how boys grow into men by watching their fathers. In our modern age the role of fathers has been denigrated and cheapened by the media and men are seen as unnecessary and disposable in the lives of their children, but that's an ugly and insidious lie. To grow up into complete people children need both male and female role models to copy from. "Lewis and Papa" illustrates how a boy watches his father deal with emotions, tough times and adversity, happiness and male bonding, and the other things that help him become a man worthy of the title, and how the boy grows up a bit on the journey to Santa Fe. This book would be a great tool for opening discussions between parent and child about many topics.

The story is well-written and would make an excellent read-along book for parent and child. It's beautifully illustrated (I especially liked the pages of the bison stampede) and depicts historical facts concerning the Trail westward. I recommend it to anyone with a young person in their life, and if that young person is a boy then the recommendation is doubled.

We really enjoyed this book. One of many recommended by TruthQuest History curriculum for American History, it was a nice introduction to the Santa Fe Trail.

The celebration of manhood in Lewis and Papa is wonderful. A man must be brave, although it is perfectly acceptable for him to be scared. A man does what must be done, although it is perfectly acceptable for him to shed a few tears when he must do something sad.

In the Note from the Author, she asks, "How does a boy learn of his father's love? Is it more by words or actions?" Lewis and Papa is a book about action (specifically, action on the Santa Fe Trail in the 1800's), and a father's love for his son is evident in these actions (and in the beautiful paintings by Jon Van Zyle).
