The book tells of all the fabric scraps Rebecca saves on their long journey across the country by wagon.Each fabric piece has a story behind it. The family has to walk so the wagon space can hold their belongings. When they get to Oregon it's so beautiful, it seems they may stay put this time.Rebecca's Mother helps her make a quilt with the fabric she has saved.The pattern they use is called "Wandering Foot", now known as "Turkey Tracks". The last page explains why the name was changed. It doesn't take long to read this book and older children could easily read it themselves. Besides giving some history on quilts,it reminds us there were days, not so long ago, where people didn't have lots of material possessions and life was quite different than today. Great book!
Those interested in Americana or quilting will enjoy this well told tale.
