Publisher's Summary

It is 1863 and Emily Blue Hatchett has been told by her father that, come spring, their family will leave their farm, family and friends in Quincy, Illinois, and travel the Overland Trail to a new home in Golden, Colorado. Emmy and her mom have mixed feelings about the trip and are saddened by all they must leave behind. When Emmy's grandmother comes to say goodbye, she gives Emmy a special gift, something to occupy her time along the trail.

The journey by wagon train is long and full of hardships, and Emmy's experiences along the way bring the period of westward expansion, as well as issues facing women, to life for young listners.

Great for all ages!

If you would like a sweet, gentle book, The Quilt Walk is for you. Although written for middle age children, it has many endearing qualities. It is the story of Emma Blue who travels by wagon train with her family to seek a new start in Golden, CO. Emma relates stories of their travels across the Great Plains as they travel from Illinois to Colorado. The author shows a gentler side of their encounter with the Indians as well as the realities of all the different personalities that make up the men, women and children traveling in their caravan.
