  • This book featured a unique variety of cultures and languages that I found very interesting It was a bittersweet story with many meetings and partings but all of the characters were interesting and showed how many different people came together while traveling on the trail As I ve said before, I love Dear America books that have a journey involved and this was no exception.


  • This neat book covers a period of time not frequently discussede brave people who traveled the Santa Fe Trail I wish there were details about the history of the trail in the back, as well as a note about what would typically happen to orphaned children on the trail It was a good read, though.




  • All the Stars in the Sky Santa Fe Trail 0 439 16963 1 All the Stars in the Sky takes the reader over the Santa Fe trail as the narrator s family emigrates to their new home Like many of the Dear America books, the narrator s family life is frustratingly messy in this case, her mother is newly remarried after having been a widow for many years, and the children are forced to adjust to a new father and a new way of life at the same time, for Mr Ryder is a merchant and merchants must go where the c [...]


  • First review Florrie Mack Ryder makes the difficult journey from their present home in Missouri to Santa Fe, New Mexico, to their stepfather s trading store and their new home there One part I thought was interesting was when the family stopped at Fort Bent to resupply and engage a doctor for the pregnant mother The baby ends up dying from premature birth, and the stepfather and children are forced to go on without the mother, to return for her after her health is strengthened As the stepfather [...]


  • If there s any way to get kids who hate history into history, the Dear America series may be it I wish these books had been around when I was in middle school This particular one reminded me of the computer game Oregon Trail, the only other thing that has ever gotten me into history I unfortunately have to admit that without Oregon Trail, I d know nothing about the great westward movement Books like this one give readers a person albeit a fictional one to see history through Not only does the bo [...]


  • All The Stars in the Sky The Santa Fe Trail Diary of Florrie Mack RyderAs with several other books in the series, this one deals with a young girl moving West, this time along the Santa Fe Trail in 1848 As with the other similar books, this one describes some of the hardships families had to endure during their travel to the west, and how some of them never survived the journey.This book diverges in that it deals with the Santa Fe trail, a trail which was perhaps a little worn in than the Orego [...]


  • Twelve year old Florrie barely remembers her father, who died when she was very young Now her mother has remarried, and Florrie s new stepfather, who is a trader, has decided to take his new family to Santa Fe, where he is part owner of a store Florrie begins her diary as she, her younger brother, mother, and stepfather set out from Missouri on the Santa Fe trail She describes the hardships they face crossing rivers, mountains, and deserts, but also the joys, as she makes new friends and experie [...]


  • This book is different then others I have read For the format is in Diary setting Though I understood the story behind it This was great read It told of the history of the Trail It about a girl that goes though the some hardships and adjustments.Florrie and her family travel from Arrow Rock, Missouri to Santa Fe, New Mexico Florrie and her brother Jem need to adjust to having a stepfather named Mr Ryder You learn a lot about the daily life of being on the Santa Fe Trail back in 1848.Most of thi [...]


  • One of the first of my reads about the Santa Fe Trail, this one I liked very much This family left Missouri with the Oregon bound people and split to go South to settle in southwest territories gained from Mexico Unlike the heavily traveled Oregon Trail, this one was primarily a buffalo route American traders were unwelcome, under Spanish rule, but by 1821, Mexico was independant of Spain Mexican governors were eager to trade with Americans The dangers were different from the Oregon bound people [...]


  • This entire series is a wonderful way to learn history or teach it to adolescents I find today s generations seem to recall when they learn through other people pop songs, celebrity gossip, etc , so what better way to teach history than through someone else s perspective Yes, authentic diaries would be better , but would the language really hold the modern student s attention Did the diary writer know what WOULD be important in the context of history Probably not.


  • This is a Dear America book, telling the story of Florence as she travels west on the Santa Fe trail with her stepfather and family The friends she makes, and has to part from as they go their seperate ways I enjoy this series because they are well researched books that are written in a way that makes history come alive.


  • It was a very good book I think that it was too ordinary and dully realistic for my taste But I thought about it even after I was done reading it and talked about with others who I thought would enjoy this story line I just wasn t in the mood for realistic the day I read it What I learnedI learned that I am glad for the world of conveniences that I enjoy daily Actually every minute.


  • I applaud the author for being able to write about a girl going on the Santa Fe Trail and for writing it well Because most of the trail was also part of the Oregon Trail I felt a little bored with her describing different places but the characters kept me interested Not one of my favorite Dear Americas but good enough for me to read again.


  • Nice diary written by a young girl on the Santa Fe Trail of the 1840 s A reminder of the harshness of those journeys and leaves me wondering if I would have been one of those likely to do so I think not.


  • I read this book.I like that Florrie, her brother, mom and dad get safely to Santa Fe And I like that they have a home and have a adopted baby sister.I don t like that Mr.Ryder spent all their money on gamboling games.It was a really good book.


  • This book is phenomenal I feel a connection between me and Florrie I feel like her best friend who knows all her secrets I want to help her, cry with her, laugh with her, carry her through difficult situations, and just be her best friend ever I ll never forget her.


  • A quick and enjoyable read I was transported Found I couldn t stop reading when I started McDonald captured the essence of a young girl traveling west without the comforts we now know She did her homework and it gave the reader the impression she had been there herself Well done






  • This one is a little boring for me I definitely prefer some of the other western themed books in this series But it s still sweet and has some inspiring thoughts






  • I cant read the diary format back to back but it is also another really good book It s innocent and very goodhearted loved it.


  • An engaging account of a young girl s journey to Santa Fe She greatly misses her old friends, home, and belongings, but soon makes new friends and learns that not all changes are bad.
