SummaryAdd a Summary
Teresa Angelino Viscardi is angry with her grandmother, her uncle, and her father for making her leave her home and travel far to her new home. She records this in her diary. Her little sister, Antoinetta, or Netta, sneaks and reads the diary, and writes in it. Teresa becomes reconciled to this. Along the way, Teresa's uncle and father get the "silver fever" and go the silver mines, promising to catch up with their families later. Soon, Teresa's family members become ill, and they stay behind. Teresa's grandmother and herself must go find her uncle and father. After a battle with thieves, they find them and hurry back, only to find Teresa's sister Netta has died. Heartbroken, they bury her, and continue on. They are almost home, and though Teresa's heart is sad, she is full of hope for a good life in her new home.
