  1. Sweet and Adventurous 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 02/15/2019

    I call this book sweet and adventurous, because it has elements of tenderness, adventure and danger. This novel tells of a young, orphan boy traveling west with his cousin's family, and the many dangers that those westward travelers faced. It is realistic, in that not every day is filled with hardship, and not all is lighthearted and fun. This story tells of familial love, faith, heartbreak and adventure. The book is perfect for the recommended age group, and is a nice addition to studies of American History.
