THE LITTLE HOUSE ON RUNNERS

Story of a little boy and girl who lived in Boston a hundred years ago. Charles, Lottie, their father, Mr. Brewster, and Candy, a colored girl had traveled over the country in a house on wheels while Mr. Brewster sold goods. Their winter in Boston captures the spirit of the city of that day -- the children know the Hales, Mr. Holmes, the Alcotts including the baby Louisa. They see the first railroad, meet the President, Mr. Jackson, and help a runaway slave across the border into Canada.
