This book takes place in the late 1800's in Philadelphia.
Jane does not act like a lady. She spits with the boys, eats Mrs. Parker's cherry pies, and ends up with cherries all over herself. When William arrives to live with Jane and her father, he encourages her to attend a school that will teach her better manners-to mold her into a quiet lady who is proper. When William sets sail from Philadelphia to explort eh new frontier, all the way to the Northwest coast, will Jane follow? Will she leave civilized Philadelphia and her father to live among "savages?" This is an adventure by Newbery Honor autor of Our Only May Amelia, Jennifer Holm. Highly reccomended.
