Review: Set in 1835, this story tells of Jesse, who wants his own copy of The Swiss Family Robinson very much; so much, in fact, that he is willing to work very hard to make enough money to purchase a used copy from the floating library/bookstore that travels the Erie Canal each week. The simple language and illustrations reflect a simpler time in our nation's history.
