Wherever Kirsten goes in her hometown of Ryd, Sweden, there is one word on everyone's lips: America. All around her, crops are failing and families are one bad harvest away from starving. When Kirsten's Uncle Olav writes from America to tell about the rich farmland there, the Larsons make the decision to join him in America. Kirsten braves terrible storms and deadly disease on her journey across the ocean. After six long weeks at sea, she finally hears the welcome cry, "Land ho!" On wobbly legs, Kirsten makes her way down the ship's gangplank. What will happen now? she wonders. Will I ever feel at home in this new land? Book jacket.
