The Quilt Walk

Amazon.com Rating:

It is 1863 and Emily 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 and her mom have mixed feelings about the trip and are saddened by all they must leave behind.

When Emmy's grandmother comes to say goodbye, she gives Emmy a special gift, something to occupy her time along the trail. The journey by wagon train is long and full of hardships and Emmy's experiences along the way bring the period of westward expansion, as well as issues facing women, to life for young readers.

New York Times best-selling and award-winning author Sandra Dallas brings her much-admired storytelling talent to middle-grade readers for the first time.

Description

"Even with the exciting journey in front of them, Emmy and her parents cannot help mourning what they are forced to leave behind: friends, family, pets and markers in the cemetery for lost loved ones.... Period details, engaging characters and clever plot twists will entice even the most discerning fans of historical fiction. Populated with brave and intelligent women, Dallas' story is as much about Emmy's journey toward womanhood as their journey toward the West." -- Kirkus
