The Quilt Walk by Sandra Dallas

It's 1863 and 10-year-old Emmy Blue Hatchett has been

told by her father that, come spring, their family will

leave their farm, family, and friends in Quincy, Illinois,

and travel the Overland Trail to a new home in Golden,

Colorado. Emmy has mixed feelings about going.

"Part of me was like Pa, wanting the excitement of going

to a new place where we might be rich. But the other part

wanted to stay in Quincy with my friends and grandparents,

with everything I knew, where I would be safe."

It's difficult leaving family and friends behind. They might

not see one another ever again. When her grandmother

comes to say goodbye, she gives Emmy a special gift,

something to keep her occupied on the trip.

The journey by wagon train is long and full of hardships.

But the Hatchetts persevere and reach their destination

in Colorado, ready to start their new life.

Based on an incident in Colorado history, Sandra Dallas

crafts a spellbinding story for young readers.
