From Our Editors
Animated pictures capture the drama and warmth of this historically based, affectionate story of good and bad times on a 19th-century wagon-train journey. "Coerr packs strong emotions into the story, which is detailed and eventful enough to create a vivid historical setting within the confines of a beginning-to-read format".--Booklist
