Summer on the Lakes in 1843
Kessinger Publishing, Jun 1, 2004 - 172 pages
These boats come in and out every day, and still afford a cause for general excitement. The people swarm down to greet them, to receive and send away their packages and letters. To me they seemed such mighty messengers, to give, by their noble motion, such an idea of the power and fullness of life, that they were worthy to carry despatches from king to king. It must be very pleasant for those who have an active share in carrying on the affairs of this great and growing world to see them come in. It must be very pleasant to those who have dearly loved friends at the next station. To those who have neither business nor friends, it sometimes gives a desolating sense of insignificance.

This book is boring and dull. There is no conceivable plot. It is more a travel journal than anything else, with a great care paid attention to the details of the prairies and trees and flowers but little to other people or anything of true substance. Read full review

I thought this was a wonderful account of her journeys and experience. I love to see a memory of history through the eyes of someone that was there. Read full review
