This story of Tildy Gale and her family, as they journey by wagon and oxcart from Ohio to a tiny new settlement in the wilds of Wisconsin, is "full full of adventure - fire, quicksand pits, and marauding Indians." Once settled in their new log cabin, they plunge into all the duties of pioneer life and experience many ups and downs with their neighbors. The author has "drawn upon the annals and experiences of her own family. Diaries, journals, and family traditions supplied the warm, human material for (this book) and careful research provides authenticity of detail."

Dust jacket has two small chips at top of spine with creasing and closed tears, larger 1/2" piece missing from bottom of spine, tears and chips at edges and corners, light/moderate soiling and foxing at top edge of flaps - now protected in mylar sleeve.
