I'm Listening (imlistening) | 2 comments Historical fiction perhaps YA. I think I read it in the eighties or even the seventies. Younger brother ( who seeing a need learned to cook) is included on dangerous journey to clear the land with father and older brothers. Women and kids to follow the next spring. SPOILER - everyone dies on the trip (crossing a river, I think) except the young boy who survives the winter and even manages to clear the trees.

I'm Listening (imlistening) | 2 comments Early America. Not out west, but when the wilderness was not far in from the civilization on the east coast. Wish I could remember more.
