    I love books written in the form of a journal or diary. This book included a map and a quilt pattern that must take up for the large file size of 811kb because the book only fhas 97 pages in it. I loved the writingg but I think the authorr could have included more material like the sight of reat migrations to make the book longer.

    Great woman's wagon trail diary!

    Fun to pull out a map and follow the Pieratt family's route from Kentucky to Kansas. Good historic fiction "letters from the trail" for all ages, but also for classroom project for kids too. Our local quilting store used the book series for a quilt block-a-month-the-month project. The store bought the printed books through the publisher so we could buy them and read along with the story. I recommend readers buy the ebook version.

    Enlightening!

    Short, easy to read chapters tell of the amazing things women were required to do on a wagon train. Very educational and excerpts would be appropriate to read to children studying this time period. Touching characters whom you would like to get to know.
