Award-winning author Jean Van Leeuwen tells the moving story of a pioneer family during the Westward Expansion
One day in early spring they packed everything they had into our wagon, and set out to find a new home. Sleeping under the stars, weathering terrible storms, and fording swollen rivers, Hannah and her family made the journey of a lifetime.
