  • I love farming with my family in Montana!
  • Oh yeah I heard!
  • Did you hear!?
  • You know, If you are looking for a faster way to get to Washington, I can help!
  • Really!? That would be great!
  • My name is Sadie! I am 12 years old. My family and I are farmers in Montana. We like to farm wheat and corn.
  • Yay! We are so happy to be farming again!
  • While she was out, my mother overheard two men talking about how there was now tremendous wealth in Washington due to the construction of the Great Northern Railroad and Gold Rush.
  • I cant believe the amount of work we were doing, when we could have just been using a tractor!
  • The next day, my father and mother overheard two women talking about how the Great Northern Railroad comes right through here, and is a fast way to get to Washington. So off we went to Washington!
  • Once we arrived in Washington, we found some farm land and began to farm again right away!
  • When I lived in Montana, we had a tractor. But the new invention of the tractor makes farming so much easier!
  • A huge change that took me a while to get use to, was that we dont have to farm our own food anymore! We are able to just go to the store and buy our food!
