Why would a family with ten children leave the safe and loving embrace of their ancestral home to journey into the American frontier? Lois Jordan’s Journey By Faith leads us to consider the 1830 journey of a New Jersey Quaker family as they leave their home, friends, and family to travel along the Erie Canal and explore the wilds of Michigan and Ohio. Based on actual journals written by family members, this book chronicles the depth of soul-searching and faithful seeking that this family endured as they made their move. Appropriate for middle school to adult readers, this brief portion of one family’s history gives us a glimpse into the Quaker faith and the courageous settling of the American West.
