    Unlike the image projected in Hollywood westerns, where covered wagons are pulled by attractive teams of matched Percheron and Belgian horses, oxen and mules were the preferred draft animals, Duane told me. In a covered wagon, while riding slowly out in the Oregon Trail book air, every blade of grass, every fence post and farm, or the mallard ducks rising from the streams, assumes a visual and olfactory intensity that you can never feel while trapped inside a speeding car. It exposes students to a genre that most of mine, anyway are unfamiliar with. No one had attempted this arduous journey in more than a century, probably with good reason. It shows how hard sometimes it is to leave things you love behind to make it to the goal.

    This was a book club read for me, one that I probably would not have picked up otherwise, and I ended up really enjoying this read! It was a Oregon Trail book spectacle when we came, for the first time, in view of the vast migration, slowly winding its way westward over the broad plain. Many more immigrants were dispatched by shooting accidents and wagon crashes than were killed by Indians, and the river crossings were often treacherous in the spring, costing many pioneers their lives. It really made me want to see the trail and do some exploring, and these historical sections were truly fascinating.

    They also must reckon with the ghost of their father, an eccentric yet loveable dreamer whose memory inspired their journey across the plains and Oregon Trail book premature death, many years earlier, has haunted them both ever since. I recommend it to everyone!!! Long after he led an expedition to the southern Great Plains in — This should be a must read for any child or young adult. I was raised during the s and early s on a ramshackle old horse farm in New Jersey. Nice addition to study — Pat Gagnon.
