Transcript of Boss of the Plains Comprehension Questions

Let’s Discuss Boss of the Plains! Pages 200-221 What does it mean by "back home" for the settlers and travelers in the American West? How does the author try to capture the reader’s interest in the last sentence on page 221? Why do you think the author only shows the tops of people’s heads in the illustrations on pages 220 and 221 Pages 222 & 223 How does the illustration show that John is different from his brothers and sisters? Why is he different? Why do you think John daydreams about moving west? Page 224 Why does the author say that if John "wanted to see the West, he couldn’t wait?" Are you surprised that John takes off for the Colorado Territory with an unknown group of travelers? How has the author prepared you for this? Page 226 What details does the author use to contrast the effects of the hat shop and the praire on John’s health? What conflict does the author set up between John and the Pikes Peakers? Who do you think is right? Do you think John is comfortable traveling with the Pikes Peakers? Why or Why not? Pages 228 & 229 Why does John have a "gleam in his eye?" What does the author
mean by the Pikes Peakers
"trying their luck" Pages 230 & 231 Why does the stranger’s eyes light up when he sees John’s hat? Page 233 What "gamble" has John taken? Pages 236 & 237 Instead of saying that the "hat cost a lot," the phrase "cost a cowboy a whole month’s wages" was chosen. Why do you think the author chose this phrase? Why does the author list things the hat could do? Why do you think the illustrator shows animals benefiting from the Boss of the Plains? Pages 238 & 239 Do you think every cowboy used his Boss
of the Plains in all the ways shown? Do you think "Boss of the Plains" is a good name for John Stetson’s hat?
