Libby Mitchell is turning 10, and today is the day that she and her parents climb into a covered wagon and set off on a long journey. They'll go a thousand miles over 2 months! Their trip from Virginia to the deep woods of Michigan is hard, but it's exciting, too! At the end lies their new home in a place that's rugged, wild and full of promise. Recommended for ages 6 to 9, grade 3.
