    Dear America: Across the Wide and Lonesome Prairie

    Dear America: Across the Wide and Lonesome Prairie

    by Kristiana Gregory

    Critically acclaimed and award-winning author Kristiana Gregory's Across the Wide and Lonesome Prairie is now back in print with a gorgeous new package!

    After the death of her two sisters, thirteen-year-old Hattie and her family make for a fresh start. They sell their farm in Missouri and journey across the Oregon Trail toward Oregon City. At first the adventure is exciting, but as the days, weeks, and months pass, Hattie realizes what a dangerous and tedious trip it is. As they cross the prairies, news of the fate of the Donner party reaches them, and death, disease, weather, and the terrain take a terrible toll on their traveling party. The Campbells lose neighbors and friends until they almost cannot bear to continue. But Hattie and her family must persevere or risk the same misfortune. Hattie's diary chronicles the hardships of such a harrowing journey, but also captures the small moments, the friendships and celebrations of life, that keep hope alive.

About This Book

Caldecott Medal-winning author and illustrator Chris Van Allsburg offers a special tale of a widow who finds herself in possession of an extraordinary broom left by a witch who fell into the widow's garden.

Some of Minna Shaw's neighbors don't trust her clever broom. "It's dangerous," they say. "It's a wicked, wicked thing." Minna disagrees. She appreciates the broom's help and enjoys its quiet company. One day two children get a well-deserved thrashing from the broom. For her neighbors, this is proof of the broom's evil spirit. Minna is obliged to give up her dear companion.

Full-color illustrations.
