In 1858, twelve-year-old Sallie Fox and her family leave Iowa in a wagon train, dreaming of California. They follow the Santa Fe Trail to New Mexico, and then head due west across the bleak desert. Suddenly, Indians attack the pioneers, driving off their cattle and oxen. One hundred people--many sick and injured--are now stranded in the searing summer heat, five hundred miles from anyone who can help them! Yet, through grit, determination and luck, Sallie and the others survive to reach California, though not without paying a heavy price. This lightly fictionalized account of a true story is drawn from diaries, memoirs, letters and many other historical sources. It tells the heartwarming story of a plucky pioneer girl who learns that through courage and the love of her family, she can overcome any adversity.

About the Author:

Dorothy Kupcha Leland has had a life-long interest in California history. She first learned Sallie's story from a menu note at the Nut Tree restaurant in Vacaville, CA. She is the author of several other books.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-6-A fictionalized account of 12-year-old Sallie Fox's arduous trek by wagon train with her family from Iowa to California in the mid 1800s. Along the way, they are beset by Indian attacks, drought, illness, and personality clashes. What begins as an exciting adventure becomes an ordeal, days and days without water and animals and people dying at an alarming rate. Sally shares her fear of Indians and her excitement about buffalo hunting. She provides an interesting perspective in today's politically correct climate, proving again that hindsight is indeed 20/20. An exciting, well-paced story, a step up from the "American Girls" series (Pleasant), and a dose of realism for devotees of the computer game Oregon Trail.?Ann Cook, Winter Park Public Library, FL
