Eleven-year-old Samuel is excited to sail with his family from South Africa to live in America--then he is diagnosed with typhoid fever (35 pages/70 vintage images for children ages 6 - 11 years, 1st - 6th grades).

World War I has broken out. Samuel's parents have sold their business, their home--everything--to purchase passage on a freighter to the USA. Now their boy is in the hospital; and even if he lives, no ship will let him aboard for several weeks. Meanwhile, Atlantic crossings may not be possible for long.

Experience this family's heart-wrenching choice and its consequences through the eyes of the child who lived it. Set in an important era of history, this hybrid picture book transcends culture and time, lauding the courage and faith of all who seek a better life.

Look inside #4 in the Young American Immigrants children's series (nonfiction; stand alone, previous titles not required). 1,000 read-aloud words adapted from Samuel P. Martin's autobiography by award-winning author/illustrator and media professor Karl Beckstrand (Horse & Dog Adventures in Early California--see 60+ multicultural books--click Karl Beckstrand above).
