    I use this book in class when I teach about pioneers. It is a book about the travel of a family from Vermont through New York State in their covered wagon. The family settles in a little town that is near the opening of the Erie Canal (Lockport). The town the family settles in is actually called Pekin NY now. Very good reference for WNY teachers.

    This book reminded me of the Laura Ingalls Wilder books. Not only did they travel by wagon train to unsettled country, but it describes how to build a log cabin etc., though not in as much detail. A nice little book!

    This is a sweet story that I will save for my granddaughter to read some day.
