Inhaltsangabe: In Kansas Territory in 1847, Willow Chase is swept away by the flooded river she and her pioneer family attempt to cross and is forced to struggle through difficult terrain to rejoin them once again.
From School Library Journal:
Grade 4-7. Two fictional diary entries frame the story of Willow's journey to California in 1847. The first entry finds her contemplating her wagon train's imminent crossing of the swollen South Platte river. A third-person narrative follows in which readers meet the girl's cheerful mother, good-natured sister, strong brothers, stern stepfather, and faithful dog. Willow faces the challenges of westward emigration?hard work, illness, fear of Indians. When an Indian approaches the wagon train and asks for medicine for his sick child, Mother gives him a bottle of quinine. Later, the same man helps Willow when she is swept downstream. The book ends with another diary entry in which Willow is safely across the river and looking forward to California. Similar in style to the "American Girl" series (Pleasant), but for older readers and without illustrations, this book's value as historical fiction is slight. Readers never learn why the family is moving, and the man who rescues Willow seems to be a generic Indian with no nation.?Rebecca O'Connell, Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh
