From the Inside Flap:

"Moving West on the Oregon Trail, nine-year-old Kate Purdy and her family ward off a buffalo stampede and an Indian attack, and deal with a stowaway cat and her kittens, all the while chronicling the trip itself and the developing friendship between Kate and Rosie Murphy. Hooks gives the essence of Kate's sensitive and cunning nature while portraying Rosie as a self-sufficient young girl. The fast-moving plot helps readers along."--School Library Journal.  
From the Trade Paperback edition.
