From the PublisherTeachers and parents will appreciate this high-quality combination of text and illustration.
Richly descriptive verse narrative about a girl on the Oregon Trail.
Ormerod's texured watercolors and pastels employ billowy swatchs of color to suggest th vastness of the setting. . . . Vivid imagery makes this lyrical tale an accessible, fresh addition to the children's pioneer genre as it tackles themes of change, courage and home.
"Readers will be convinced by the girl's sentiments on the last page: "Oregon's a fine place . . . . It's home now for me.'" Horn Book
"Add this stirring story to the growing number of picture books about pioneer life." Booklist, ALA, Starred Review
