The Cabin Faced West by Jean Fritz

The Cabin Faced West

By Jean Fritz
Level 5

This is such a fantastic book! When Anne Hamilton’s family moves to the West in 18th-century America, the area is so remote that only two families live there. Readers will love the characters, engaging plot, and vivid writing as they learn about a previous era and feel both the challenges and wonders of the new land through Anne’s eyes. The warm family relationships are in stark contrast to many popular books. Themes include gratitude, adjusting to change, love of learning, hard work, strong families, and compassion.
