Amanda and her family are on a wagon train west from Kentucky to Oregon. They hope for a new life and a fresh start on free land that isnít worn out and used up. Amanda and her two brothers each keep a journal of the trip to remind them of their adventures. Each one sees the same things, but through different eyes and from different hearts, and each will remember the trip in a very different way. Share these three prairie journals and open a page of American history full of all the hopes and fears of a pioneer family.
