Description: This book, which is required reading in many NYS 4th grade classrooms, follows the adventures of 9 year old Patty Armstrong as her family moves from Vermont to WNY in 1823. The "treasure" she received from her grandmother for her birthday is a part of all the adventures she faces - both scary and rough.
