This is a pleasant little story of the brightest and least sensational side of Western frontier life. Many of H. H.'s own experiences in travelling towards and through the great West, which have been described to older people in "Bits of Travel at Home," are here introduced in an easy, natural, story-telling manner. Nelly's father is an asthmatic clergyman who emigrates to Colorado with his wife and children in search of health, which we are assured he finds. The long journey, and the change of residence after having settled once, are well described, and will give children a careful and good idea of Colorado scenery. The few characters of the frontier which find their way into the book are very mild and natural indeed in comparison with the bloodthirsty, scalp-hunting individuals who generally find their way into literature for the young relating to the same class, and they are presumably much more true to nature.
