I use this book in class when I teach about pioneers. It is a book about the travel of a family from Vermont through New York State in their covered wagon. The family settles in a little town that is near the opening of the Erie Canal (Lockport). The town the family settles in is actually called Pekin NY now. Very good reference for WNY teachers.
