Emily and the Santa Fe Trail
By Evelyn A. Bartlow. Imagine what is was like to be a twelve-year-old Missouri farm girl who traveled with her father and brother alongside a covered wagon to Santa Fe.
Read all about walking 850 miles, sleeping on the ground, enduring the dust, the summer storms, the dangers. Put on your sunbonnet or straw hat and travel back into the past with Emily.
