Publisher Summary
Twelve-year-old Austin Ives writes letters to his younger brother describing his journey from their home in Pennsylvania to Oregon in 1851

In 1851, 12-year-old orphan Austin Ives joins a wagon train headed for California.  As he makes his way across the country, Austin writes home to his brother Levi, describing life on the rugged Overland Trail.  Extensively researched, with episodes based on true incidents, "the epistolary format and character development offer solid reading."--Booklist
