In this chapter book, an 1860s crop shortage forces Eric and his family from their home in Sweden. Facing starvation, the family moves to the United States where they work hard to earn money to purchase a farm. Spanning different regions, time periods, and ethnic groups, this series of fictional accounts help students explore the American immigrant experience. Readers are introduced to some of the reasons why people move to a new land, and they experience the triumphs and tragedies of families who risked the journey to America. (Genre: Historical Fiction)
