Read the passage and answer the questions.
Eliza stared out of the back of the covered wagon. Fields of grass stretched for miles and miles behind them. Eliza thought she had felt every single bump of the wagon along the way.
Riding in the back of the wagon was definitely not comfortable. She and her sister Martha were squeezed in among all of the family’s belongings. Wooden chests held clothes and blankets. Crates held her mother’s iron pots and pans. A barrel held bread and dried meat for the long journey.
Eliza sighed. She had been happy at their home in Ohio. But her father was eager to settle out west. There was rich farmland for the taking out there. He dreamed of a cabin and fields of corn. But Eliza missed her little house in Ohio. She missed her friends. She knew life on a farm was hard work. Would there even be a school out there?
Her father didn’t seem to care about these things. “The Civil War is over,” he said. “It’s time for a fresh start for all of us.” So they had packed up their belongings and joined the next wagon train out west.
Eliza was relieved when the wagon came to a stop. The wagons in the train formed a circle. It was time to get out, stretch, and cook the evening meal. The men had killed some wild pheasants the day before, so dinner would be tasty, at least.
Eliza hopped out of the wagon. They were in the middle of a prairie. Colorful flowers grew among the tall grasses. They made Eliza smile. She still wasn’t happy about the move out west. But at least the flowers were pretty.
