This story is based on research on what a Canadian immigrant's life might have been like in the 1830s.

It fell on the medium side when it came to length.
Grammar and spelling was wonderful. It's hard to find any errors!
I love the placement of pictures, and the storyline is good. However, the story will always end with you in debt, and in jail.
5/8. Enjoyed this story.

A bit fact heavy but good use of pictures and extra kudos for inserting a general story in there. This reads like a school project rather than a story but it was mostly interesting. Having the reader's character interact with historical characters and events might help increase interest and break up the impression of reading a non-fiction book. :)

It was well-written, and I applaud the author for this. As a Canadian myself, this was very historically accurate and you definitely have potential!

Very interesting. I enjoyed it very much. And I learned! This coming from someone who hates most westerns. Ty!

Though I did become indebted, I can see that this story, though linear, was well written and nearly historically accurate to the hair.

I love it!

There seems to be only one ending no matter what you do.

I don't feel as if the pictures added anything, and the choices were fairly obvious. 4/8
