Hannah and the Two Sisters: An Erie Canal Adventure. Irene Uttendorfsky. In the spring of 1864 fifteen-year-old Hannah Miller struggles to deal with the ups and downs of growing up in the sleepy foothills of the Adirondacks. A few months later her world is turned upside down when cholera strikes her family, and the boy she hoped to marry enlists in the 146th Regiment, New York State Volunteers. Hannah must leave her home in Boonville and live with a disagreeable aunt in Rome, unless she can convince her pa to take her along when he goes back to work on the Erie Canal, aboard the Two Sisters.
