Read full description of the books Adventure on the Wilderness Road, 1775:WEST TO CAINTUCK! Everyone warns of Indian ambushes as Elizabeth Poage and her mother, father, and four brothers and sisters begin the dangerous trip westward to Daniel Boone's new settlement in Kentucky. But the only thing bothering eleven-year-old Elizabeth is her younger sister, Martha -- Pa's favorite. Things start looking up when another family with girls Elizabeth's age joins the caravan. Elizabeth, the only one who can read and write, entrances all by reading aloud from her copy of "Gulliver's Travels." All the children -- even Martha -- crowd around to listen to the fantastic tale.
Inspired, Elizabeth records the events of her own journey: the harsh climb over mountains, across rivers, and through hostile Indian territory. Elizabeth believes she's ready for anything -- until Martha disappears. Then, without thinking, she races into the savage wilderness to find the sister she tried not to love...
