KIRKUS REVIEW

Among a wide choice of pioneering stories, this seems fuller and richer in substance than most of them. Betsy shares the happenings on the trek by covered wagon from Connecticut to Ohio, and has some adventures of her own when she gets left behind. There is more of ways of life, perhaps, because the country through which they passed was more populated and there were occasional towns on route; there is less of the open trail, and nothing of Indian raids. A note of authenticity in handling of detail.
