Genre: Historical Fiction
• Historical Fiction is set in the
past. It is a story in which some
of the details are factual but in
which others are made up or
are loosely based on history.
Look for the factual details as
you read.
Summary
Ramon Ernesto Ramirez grew
up on a ranch in the
southwestern United States in
the 1930’s. His life was the
same as ours in some ways.
He went to school every day, he had to
do chore before he could play, and he
celebrated holidays with his family. But
his life was different, too. Because he
lived on a ranch, he helped round up
and brand the cattle.
Comprehension Skill Review: Setting
•Setting is the time and place in
which a story occurs.
•Sometimes the setting is important
to the lot of a story. At other times, the
setting is only background.
•Sometimes pictures show the setting,
and sometimes you have to imagine it.
•Details the author has written can help
you see, hear, feel, and smell what it is
like to be there.
