Synopsis

Catherine and her cousin, Jenny, travel with a wagon train along the dangerous Overland Route from Missouri to Oregon.  Trying to avoid another night of beans and more beans for dinner, they look for gooseberries to make a pie.  But as Jenny worries about food and the future, Catherine assures her there is much to discover…along the trail and within herself.
