Used paperback small pen writing regarding grade level
In the summer of 1854, after a long & dangerous journey on a small ship, Kirsten Larson & her family arrive in America. Everything in the new land is different from the small village Kirsten left behind in Sweden. The way people dress, how they talk, & the ways they travel all seem strange to her. Will she ever feel at home in this new place? Getting lost in a big city & parting with her best friend make her wonder. It is only when the Larsons arrive at a tiny farm on the edge of the frontier that Kirsten believes Papa's promise -- America will be a land filled with happy opportunity for all of them.
