Read full description of the books:
We listened to this book on tape on a drive. I have to get stories that are kid friendly, and this one did not disappoint. I'd already read it, so I knew the kids would like it.
California Morning Whipple has lost her father and little sister, and now must move to California itself from her beloved Massachusetts. She doesn't want to go and does so very grudgingly. Even so, she becomes a big help to her mother, hunting game, making pies and helping in the boarding house where her mother is proprietress in Lucky Diggings, California. Along with her brother Butte, and sisters Sierra and Prairie, they slowly make a life in the rough frontier settlement. But California wants to go "home." She changes her name to Lucy and refuses to give up on her dream of saving enough money to return to her grandparents on the east coast.
All kinds of adventures ensue, with falls in raging rivers, fires, suitors for Mama, and even racial issues. Will Lucy learn to love California? Will she leave her family? I'll never tell! Great story, wonderful and believable characters.
