Step back to 1851 with me.
The Perch, the daily packet has arrived at the Elm Ridge, Illinois levee. Among the passengers, are Hans Hoffmann and Louisa Mueller.
Hans brings few material goods. However, Louisa brings two trunks of household items and bakery tools.
I can picture Louisa climbing up to sit beside the freight wagon driver in the journey from the levee to her cousin’s farm three miles out of town.
You will find Louisa & Hans’s journey and adventures in New Dreams. Details & purchase links —
