This is about a family making the great trek across the great seas from Scotland to Canada. This story is both realistic yet mixed with fiction. This is one of the best historical fiction stories I have read.

The View From Castle Rock by Alice Munro
This is a great historical fiction short story. Alice Munro in her own words describes this short story: "Members of my family, bearing the names of the characters in the story, did sail from the port of Leith to Quebec City, taking six weeks for the journey, in the summer of 1818. One of them, Walter, did keep a journal of the voyage, which I have quoted throughout."
