In this Newbery Honor book classic, young Sarah learns how to be brave even when the world is strange and new.
In 1707, young Sarah Noble and her father traveled through the wilderness to build a new home for their family. “Keep up your courage, Sarah Noble,” her mother had said, but Sarah found that it was not always easy to feel brave inside. The dark woods were full of animals and Indians, too, and Sarah was only eight!
The true story of Sarah’s journey is inspiring. And as she cares for her father and befriends her Indian neighbors, she learns that to be afraid and to be brave is the greatest courage of all.
The New York Times Book Review described this book as one “to be long remembered for its beautifully written simplicity and dignity.”
