Scott Russell Sanders, illustrated
by Jill Kastner
dustjacket, 32 pages, 10 1/2" by 8 1/2"
With bold strokes
of color and detail, Scott Russell Sanders and Jill Kastner offer
children a rich opportunity to participate imaginatively in history.
Focusing on the hopes and hardships
faced by one family, they provide a story that echoes the experiences
of countless pioneers-men, women, and children-who left their
homes in the East to travel to largely unknown and unsettled lands.
