An epic journey through famine, hope and survival from War Horse author and former Children's Laureate, Michael Morpurgo.
Thirteen year old Sean and ten year old Annie have one chance to escape the potato famine and plague in Ireland. They survive a shipwreck and land safely in America searching for their father. But their new land is one of hardship and they live in poverty on the streets of Boston. Follow them as they busk in a city street, run a riverboat, join a wagon train across the prairies, and dig for gold.
