I think this book 'The Cabin Faced West' is a great book to read. Ann Hamilton, the main character, meets all kind people. I recommend this book to all fifth and sixth graders. You'll learn alot of facts about the colonial times, in the 1700'S.

The Cabin Faced West is a good book. It is about this ten year old girl who doesn't like the western country. At the end of the book she is going to meet someone special.

There was a girl named Ann Hamilton. She was a pioneer. She had to move over the mountains from her best friend Margaret. There were two people in this book that you would really love reading about.
