This would be great book for any pre-teen or teenage girl interested in history. It is a fictional first hand account of a girl who travels across the prairie in the mid 1800s.

This is the first book in this series that I have read. It is very good, and gives you a good view of what it was like to come across the country in a covered wagon from the view of a young teenager. The way that she saw things was completely different then an adult would have seen things. She tells you about the deaths and the births along the way and the way she describes the scenery is so good that you feel like you are really there. Although this book is written for young adults I enjoyed it very much and would recommend it to anyone who wants to know more about this time in history.

I read this book several years ago and most of the highlights are still pretty clear in my mind. This was when I first found out why Pepto Bismol first tasted like flavored chalk or charcoal. (The scene where the main character feeds an alleged parsnip to a couple of teenage boys.) However, I don't know that I would advise anyone I know to read this book as some of the themes are more intense than most early teenagers can understand. A sixteen to eighteen year old could probably understand the content and intensity the best.

LOVED this book when I was in jr high. All the Dear America books are great for tweens. It dealt with real life like death, love, obey your parents and all that good stuff and it gives you a history lesson. Highly reccomended.

This was a good book. Nice quick easy read. Intended for a "younger" reader. Well written. Overall not bad.
