It's 1874, Sam and his family are moving from Kentucky to Dakota Territory. Sam isn't happy about it at all, but eventually he begins to like his new home.
But the grasshoppers that have showed up could make them have to move back to Kentucky. Sam knows what he has to do to keep that from happening and he just hopes his Father won't be upset with him.
Not a bad book, but I felt I lost interest at times. And I felt Sam wasn't always likeable. He became better towards the end, but that could be why I didn't enjoy this book as much as I thought I would.
Overall, it was an okay book.
