Go along on one family's journey to their new homesteadand see up-close the hunger, thirst, sickness, hostile Native Americans, and even deceit and thievery from fellow travelers they found along the way.
You'll also witness the ingenuity, skill, and trickery used to overcome such challenges. And you'll learn how the lure of money tempted so many onto the Oregon Trail.
Artwork and archival images create a scrapbook collage effect, making the book a visual feast. An "Encyclopedia of the Oregon Trail" at the end of the book is a handy reference.
