Carl Erik, his brother Jonas, their parents and the baby travel on crowded trains and a steamboat as they make their way to Anoka, Minnesota, via Chicago, Lacrosse and St. Paul during the late 1860s. This colorfully illustrated, episodic tribute to perseverance is a sequel to THE LONG WAY TO A NEW LAND (1981). (Ages 5-9)
