I decided not to finish this one. I found Roberts story fascinating. His early life was something out of a Dickens tale. His journey across the plains was filled with story after story of the mischief a mostly unsupervised child could get into. Once he was so tired, he snuck into a wagon and climbed into a barrel to get some sleep. Only invalids and the elderly were allowed to ride. But once he got into the barrel, he realized it contained molasses! He figured since he was already covered and sticky, he might as well stay put, and went to sleep anyway. Then he had a terrible time getting cleaned up afterwards.

But the writing was not my style at all and I had a hard time staying interested. I think I will skip this one for now. ( )
