By the time many of the pioneers reached their final destination, they had many stories to tell. Very few made it all the way without losing, or having to leave along the trail, many of their belongings. One of the first things the pioneers did when they got to their new homes was buy land. An acre of land cost about $2.00. Today, that seems like an amazing deal, but to these pioneers it was a lot of money.Once they moved onto their lands, they had to clear the land in order to plant their crops. Many didn't have time to build their homes so they lived in a lean-to, tents or their wagons. Good writers always begin their writing with a well organized outline!
