Rate this:
It's the spring of 1862, and an expedition of 150 men is making the perilous journey overland from Quebec and Ontario to the west coast of Canada, where gold has been discovered. At Fort Garry (now Winnipeg), 10-year-old Lisa, her aunt, uncle and their three young children join the group. As Lisa and her family battle their way across the prairies and over the mountains to the goldfields of Cariboo, they encounter terrible hardships--and learn how important they are to one another. Based on a true story, Overland to Cariboo is an exciting tale of danger, courage and loyalty amid the Canadian wilderness.
