This is an excellent work centered around a small girl and her family. Their travels through Indian territory are filled with excitement. Collective experiences are both inspiring and disappointing. We are inspired by the tremendous courage of the settlers against many improbable odds. The author tells a story full of high adventure . The family maintains a cohesiveness despite a fair amount of difficulties and tribulations. The book realistically depicts typical problems in settling families when the United States was under a century old. This book is a fine piece of literature for students in mid-grammar school. The writing is easy to read and the sentence structure is appropriate for students in the pre-teen stage of academic development. Students learn to write well by having read quality literature. This story is a high quality literary achievement. Students will learn to write better by having read this book and others like it. No student should leave childhood without having read this book.

Sequel to Little House in the Big Woods, and true story of the author's own childhood, and of the days when her father, feeling that civilization was coming too fast to the Big Woods, uprooted his little family and took them, via covered wagon, to Kansas. Good Americana - and a first rate tale. Personally, I liked it certainly as well, perhaps better than the other. (Kirkus Reviews) --Kirkus Reviews--This text refers to thePaperbackedition.
