Narrator Johnson, Susie.
Annotation In 1862, Iowa farmer John Knox Kennedy led a wagon train into the Walla Walla Valley of Oregon and Washington State to settle and farm the valley's deep rich top soil. These innocent farmers were unprepared for the rigors of military-style discipline Kennedy insisted on or the possibility of vicious weather and hostile natives. Their diaries and memoirs survived and the author has woven them together to provide a true account of what life was like on an eventful wagon train crossing. For high school and adult readers.2005.
