Another good read. I'm learning a lot about the history of our country in the years that led up to the Civil War, especially about what went on out west. I also found books 6-8 at a local used book store!

Sue, North River patron, July 2016, 5 stars:

This is book # 5 in the series of The Journals of Corrie Belle Hollister. Corrie's dream of becoming a newspaper writer is coming true. President Lincoln is elected and Corrie is writing and speaking to help the election. A surprise move for her and her father. The Pony Express was started and lasted 18 months. The year was 1860-62.

Very good. I liked how the story portrayed the struggle, inwardly and outwardly of the issue of slavery, states rights, and power. It was a sad time in our nation's history when emotions were running so hot. Many wasted lives. The Pony Express element in the story was interesting as well.

During the Civil War, I never knew that California tried to break up into two separate states, nor that California sent the Union gold & money often to help finance their cause for the war. True or not?

My least favorite although there are definite highlights to this one......Overall I would skip in a re-read of the series. Boys might find this one more interesting. A Library read for sure.
