Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0803730284, Hardcover)Rebecca’s papa has wandering feet. He is following his dream and taking the family west on the Oregon Trail, across prairies, rivers, and mountains. Along the way, Rebecca begins collecting pieces of cloth. In their new home, Mama will help her use these scraps to sew a quilt that will become a keepsake of their amazing, courageous journey.
Quilts have a wonderful way of holding history, and Jean Van Leeuwen’s warmly engaging story was inspired by the "wandering foot" quilt pattern that was popular during pioneer days. With sparkling illustrations by Rebecca Bond, this is a moving account of an early American girl and her cheerful optimism as her family makes a historic journey, until at last she is thrilled to arrive at the place they will finally call home.
