Personally, I think it'd be a weird one to use for Westward Expansion.
Though the time periods overlap, Tim Tingle's novel is focused more on the
Trail of Tears in the southeastern United States as a result of Andrew
Jackson's policy.
There are a couple of titles in the Dear America series where the
protagonists are actually travelling West. Those might be better options.
