Here's my book report on it. Warning: Spiolers

"Remebrance Nye and her family were pioneers in the year 1815 traveling from Connecticut to far west in New York. Mem, as her family called her,had no intrest in traveling west, nor did her mother.Their house and all of their furniture were sold before they left, but Mem was given, by her Grandmother, a locket that once belonged to to Mem,s Great-Great-Grandmother.
"After staying over night in the first town they came across, during which time many events occured, Mem climbed into their covered wagon and she lost her precious locket somewhere along the road. When she jumped out to retrieve it, she found it, but she lost the wagon.
''Mem spent days looking for her family's wagon. She camped in the woods and met a man named Artemus Ware. Eventually, Mem navigated her way out of the forest and to a town where she found parents and younger brother at last.
''After more dangerous adventures of equal excitement, they made it ot their new home, which at first was nothing but a forest, but soon enough Mem's father built a half faced shelter and went to find some neighbors to help him build their log cabin. Their neighbors stayed for three days to help them settle in. During that time Mem became best friends with a girl her age named Hannah. Mem dicided that moving out west wasn't such a bad idea."
