Title: Sarah, Plain and Tall


1
Sarah, Plain and Tall
Sarah has come from Maine to live on the prairie
farm with Anna, Caleb, and Papa. Caleb and Anna's
mother had died when Caleb was born. Sarah has
come from Maine to live on the prairie farm with
Anna, Caleb and Papa, to be a wife and mother.
But the family fears Sarah will leave them
because she misses the sea

Prairie
  • A prairie is an extensive, level or slightly
    rolling, mostly treeless tract of land in the
    Mississippi valley, characterized by a highly
    fertile soil and originally covered with course
    grasses. --Webster's Unabridged Dictionary, 1997

19th Century Travel
  • In the 19th century, though train travel was
    slow, a traveler could cross the entire continent
    by train. The transcontinental railroad was
    completed in 1869.--World Book Encyclopedia,
    1997. Sarah traveled by railroad when she moved
    from her home in Maine to the Whitting farm on
    the prairie.

19th Century Farm Life
  • Farm life in the 19th century was a life of
    working hard. Everyone had chores they were
    responsible for.
  • "Caleb and I did our chores without talking. We
    shoveled out the stalls and laid down new hay. We
    fed the sheep. We swept and straightened and
    carried wood and water. And then our chores were
    done."
