                 Sarah's dream is to live in a valley. This might be an elusive dream for a young girl who, along with her brother Frank, are orphaned early in life. Their parents die on the way to California in the early 1800's. Sarah and Frank are the only wagon train survivors. How would two children survive the highwaymen, the raging grassfires, the cold winters, and the heartache?(Many words in this story reflect the times. e.g. From the late 1600's until the late 1800's, soldiers used an iron shell filled with pitch that burned at intense heat. It was called a carcass. The United States ordnance manual of 1861 lists carcasses as weapons).
