Taste the dust of the road and feel the wind in your face as
you travel with a Kentucky family by wagon trail to the new
territory of Kansas in 1854.
Find out what it was like for the thousands of families who
made the cross-country journey into the unknown.
In this first book of the Trail of Thread series, in the
form of letters she wrote on the journey, Deborah Pieratt
describes the scenery, the everyday events on the trail, and
the task of taking care of her family. Stories of humor and
despair, along with her ongoing remarks about camping,
cooking, and quilting, make you feel as if you pulled up
stakes and are traveling with the Pieratts, too.
But hints of the brewing trouble ahead plagued them along
the way as people questions their motive for settling in the
new territory. Why didnít a Southern family have slaves with
them? Would the Pieratts vote for or against legal slavery
in the new state? Though Deborah didnít realize it, her
letters show how this trip affected her family for
generations to come.
This series is based on author Linda K. Hubalek's ancestors
that traveled from Kentucky to Kansas in 1854. Besides the
history of the times, Hubalek weaves quilting facts and
quilt pattern sketches in her book series.
