Based on true stories of young immigrants' journeys to America, these novels remind 8-12 year-olds that they can find freedom and guidance in Jesus. From Chariot.

The lure of "America letters" from New World settlers has reached the provinces of central Germany. August 1855 finds the Borners, a middle-class farm family struggling with crop failure, making plans to heed God's call leading them westward. Emilie is torn. America is just a dream to her, and she loves her native land. Besides, her best friend, Louise, must stay, while snoopy, snooty Rosamund Albrecht comes along! The Borners' journey from Germany to Wisconsin is filled with hardship and surprises, and Emily finds that only faith and the help of new friends can carry her through. In the New World, the challenges only grow. Can the Borners meet their needs for shelter, clothing, and food for the winter? Can the heartbreaking split in their family be healed? And when Emilie and her younger brother are stranded in a blizzard, can they even survive?
