"May 2, 1905-We are leaving for America tomorrow morning. I'm anxious to see my father-he's been working in a state called Minnesota the past year and saving money to pay for our steamship passage. Yet I hate to say goodbye to Grandma and Grampa Rantala and to my friends. Though I have never been further from my home than the Seinajoki River, tomorrow I am headed for Duluth, Minnesota, by way of Denmark, England and Canada." A wonderful book for teens.
