Abstract:

"Most grandmothers look back. Tabitha, "call me Grandma," Brown, not only looks to the future; she predicts it with a sagacity that puts Nostradamus to shame. At sixty-six, she set out with her family from Missouri on the grueling trip to Oregon. In 1846, when they didn't even have decent brakes on wagons, Grandma foresees the automated, mobilized society. While looking at the evening star, she murmurs, just think, someday man will fly to the stars; crossing the mighty rivers, she predicts suspension bridges; choking on dust, sees modern highways."--Kirkus.
