When Jackie, Nick, and Hannah open Mr. Barrington's mysterious trunk, they are transported to another time and place. This time, they find themselves aboard La Salle's La Belle, one of the three boats headed to La Salle's settlement. They find a list of items that they must find to return back home.

Journey to La Salle's Settlement, by Melodie A. Cuate, is about Nick and Hannah, a brother and sister, with Jackie, Hannah's friend go back in time to La Salle's settlement, after opening their teacher's mysterious trunk. They must collect a series of items before time runs out, otherwise they will be forever trapped in La Salle's time.

Journey to La Salle's Settlement is the last book in a series of five books (as of the time I am writing this). I would recommend this book to young Texas histo

What a great way to learn about Texas history! This book brought 3 kids back in time to La Salle's Settlement where they discover the struggles and blessings of the settlers. Great book for kids. Well done.

Even though the three kids travel back in time, I still classify this as historical fiction. In book five of this series Hannah, Nick, and Jackie travel back for the ship wreck of the La Salle and to see La Salle himself return from his first adventure from the settlement.
