Hallie isn't afraid of anything—that is, anything but storms, which she braves along with her grandmother, huddled beneath a special quilt. When her family joins a wagon train headed west, leaving her grandmother—and everything Hallie has ever known—behind, Hallie knows she will have to be braver than she's ever been before. But can she summon the courage to help a young buffalo stuck on a rocky ridge during a wild storm? The Newbery medalist Katherine Applegate has paired lyrical text with gorgeous watercolors throughout.
