Summary: Moving to Texas offers the promise of big adventure . . . but the journey there is tougher than Jericho ever imagined!
Leaving Tennessee for Texas in 1852 to make a fresh start seems like pure adventure to Jericho Wetherby. But as he and his family travel across the country with a few animals and a covered wagon loaded with possessions, they endure rain, muddy roads, bitter cold, and illness . . . and the fast approach of winter's blinding snowstorms. Can they make it to their new home before winter strikes? And is Jericho brave enough to survive the trip?
