Horn Book Review

Sixteen-year-old Jesse records the experiences of his family as they are relocated by the U.S. government and walk the Trail of Tears. Though a historical note provides background information, the fictional text also includes additional factual material that strains at the confines of the journal format and slows the pace of Jesse's story. A selection of historical reproductions is included. From HORN BOOK Fall 2001, (c) Copyright 2010. The Horn Book, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
