Praise for On Track for Treasure:

“This historical fiction series is full of excitement and suspense. Readers will root for the brave residents of Wanderville.” —School Library Journal

“This work of historical fiction tells the story of events that most children will not learn about in history class, and it does so in a way that will leave them wanting more.” —Booklist

Praise for the Wanderville series:

“… A page-turner that will have readers eagerly waiting for the next installment. For those who want more background, the book includes a brief explanation of the Orphan Train Movement. Readers may wonder how children can survive on their own. Here, the strong characters make it plausible.” —Booklist

“McClure celebrates bravery, ingenuity, and the bonds of family and friendship in this old-fashioned story of children fending for themselves, building a community, and eluding the adults who seek them… Readers should enjoy vicariously participating in the children’s independence and will appreciate their hard-earned triumphs.”—Publishers Weekly

“Readers will be swept away by the bravery of the young heroes… Readers of series fiction who enjoy learning about the past will gravitate toward this accessible novel and will be impatient for the sequel.”—School Library Journal

“A thoroughly enjoyable, fast-paced adventure.” —Caroline Starr Rose, author of May B
