Journeyforth What About Cimmaron?

Sarah loves living in the pristine Toutle Valley with her parents, her sister Kathy, and her horse, Cimmaron. They are all used to occasional tremors from nearby Mount St. Helens. But when the volcano erupts, Sarah's family is forced to evacuate, leaving behind their house, their chickens, their cows-and Cimmaron.

As Sarah hears the news of hot ash and mud flows covering her valley, she wonders why God would let such a terrible thing happen. Since He doesn't seem to be answering her prayers, Sarah decides to solve the problem herself. Somehow she will get back into Toutle Valley to save Cimmaron.

Sarah lives on a farm in the Toutle Valley of Washington state. She desires one thing in her life: riding her horse, Cimmaron. And Sarah will do anything she can to spend time with that horse, even if that means shirking her chores and disobeying her father. Then Mount Saint Helens blows and Sarah and her family is forced to evacuate. Sarah can think of nothing about Cimmaron, though. Will her horse survive this natural disaster?
I enjoyed reading about a family that lived so near Mount Saint Helens during the eruption in 1980. I found the whole thing very interesting. And I can totally relate to a girl worrying over her horse in such a situation. But it was difficult to like Sarah. She was so set in her ways and rude to her father… even to the point of putting another’s life in danger. She came around in the end, and I think some great dialogue could be raised if you are using this book in a homeschool curriculum way for both history and relationships.

This was a good clean book. Lots of good family teaching in it. Would be a good book for young girls to read. Lessons to be learned here.
