Description
When Pa decides to leave New Hampshire and head west, it's a decision that affects the whole family. They all must pack up and leave, pulled forward by their dreams. But the dreams must share the trek with tears. Tears for the days without rain, then tears for the bullet rain that comes, for the swelling rivers that carry their cow and chickens away, for the graves they pass. The family keeps its hopes alive by singing songs: storm songs, wheel-fixing songs, songs for going on. Tony Johnston's graceful story harmonizes perfectly with Caldecott Honor-winning illustrator Ted Lewin's lifelike watercolors, giving readers a strong feeling for one pioneer family's triumphant struggle on the westward journey to a new home.
