It all started when Ma and Pa promised I could stay a spell with Grandma Mary, who lived a million miles away through the rough old Idaho mountains. (from the first line)
In 1914, because her family cannot afford a train ticket to her grandmothers town, May gets mailed and rides the mail car on the train to see her grandmother.

From the Publisher:
Nowadays it's no big deal or a girl to travel seventy-five miles. But when Charlotte May Pierstorff wanted to cross seventy-five miles of Idaho mountains to see her grandma in 1914, it was a very big deal indeed. There was no highway except the railroad, and a train ticket would have cost her parents a full day's pay.

Here is the true story of how May got to visit her grandma, thanks to her won spunk, her father's ingenuity, and the U.S. mail.

Washington Post Book World
"Tunnell does well at placing his readers in turn-of-the-century Idaho, and of using his first-person narrative to make the spunky May real to today's readers....Ted Rand's illustrations bring alive this small piece of history with warmth and emotion." - Karen MacPherson 12/07/1997

New York Times Book Review
"...a heartwarming period piece...lovingly told, beautifully illustrated and extremely well produced in an oversize format....The story has a childlike, understated quality that is perfectly matched by the warmth of the illustrations..." - Betsy Groban 03/15/1998
