In this first book of the Trail of Thread series, in the form of letters she wrote on the journey, Deborah Pieratt describes the scenery, the everyday events on the trail, and the task of taking care of her family. Stories of humor and despair, along with her ongoing remarks about camping, cooking, and quilting, make you feel as if you pulled up stakes and are traveling with the Pieratts, too. This series is based on author Linda K. Hubalek's ancestors that traveled from Kentucky to Kansas in 1854. Besides the history of the times, Hubalek weaves quilting facts and quilt pattern sketches in her book series.

Very interesting format
I really liked the format of reading letters actually written by women on the westward journey. I've never read or listened to a book written this way and it seemed so very personal with the actual letters. Loved it!
I have nothing to compare it to.
The way it was written/read I felt like I was there.
I will definitely try more written this way. The reader did an outstanding job.
