Overview

WEST TO CAINTUCK!

Everyone warns of Indian ambushes as Elizabeth Poage and her mother, father, and four brothers and sisters begin the dangerous trip westward to Daniel Boone's new settlement in Kentucky. But the only thing bothering eleven-year-old Elizabeth is her younger sister, Martha -- Pa's favorite. Things start looking up when another family with girls Elizabeth's age joins the caravan. Elizabeth, the only one who can read and write, entrances all by reading aloud from her copy of Gulliver's Travels. All the children -- even Martha -- crowd around to listen to the fantastic tale.

Inspired, Elizabeth records the events of her own journey: the harsh climb over mountains, across rivers, and through hostile Indian territory. Elizabeth believes she's ready for anything -- until Martha disappears. Then, without thinking, she races into the savage wilderness to find the sister she tried not to love...

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Gr 3-6-In this fourth installment in the series, Elizabeth Poage, 11, and her family join the first group of pioneers to travel the Wilderness Road to settle in Boonesborough. Prior to leaving home, Elizabeth receives a copy of Gulliver's Travels, which has extra pages in the back so that she can keep a journal of her own travel experiences to Kentucky. Throughout the journey, Elizabeth and her younger sister face the unexplored land and the often-hostile Indians who live there. By reading Gulliver's Travels as they make their way into unknown territory, Elizabeth helps her family and friends to persevere over their fears and exhaustion. Her journal entries, which are few and scattered, give readers greater insight into the daily hardships in 1775. Although the characters are not well developed, the novel has a fresh story line that involves the earliest pioneers who opened the West on Daniel Boone's Wilderness Road. Readers will devour the Poage girls' adventures. This book presents a historically accurate setting and helps youngsters of today better relate to those of yesterday.-Betsy Barnett, Eads School District, CO Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
