I decided to come west for the land rush. The first day was the hardest. I had to help build the wagon train before we left. The second day we saw a stampede of cattle. By the third month everyone was tired and needed a break. So we stopped by near by log cabins and asked if we could stay for the night. The people who lived there were kind enough to let us stay, and fed us a home cooked meal. About the sixth month we arrived on a ranch in the west with only one home.So the next day we got to work building new lives in the west.
