In this sensitive and touching work, the author has created a treasury of voices from a fictional family journeying westward in a covered wagon in the late 1800s. Amid this profound chorus of voices, the reader comes to understand the joys, the difficulties, and the introspective thoughts that the travelers carry with them on this trek westward.
This book, Prairie Voices - A Journey Westward, is embraced by older elementary age children, to teens, and through adulthood. Educators refer the book to their students for a study of the movement westward, for a study of empathy, and for play acting of the individual characters.
While this narrative focuses on a journey in the 1800s, those of all ages experience in this book the profound and universal feelings we all face on our own journeys as we move through the joys and sorrows of our lives.
