Westward ho! Pack up your wagon and come along on this thrilling adventure. Read about the brave pioneers who traveled the Oregon Trail, and share their excitement in finally settling into a log cabin or sod house.
Unfortunately, the West wasn't always the paradise the pioneers thought it would be. Harsh weather, accidents, and disease often delayed their journeys. And after they arrived, the chores were endless! Can you imagine helping to make bread, jelly, soap, and even your own clothes ... by hand?
Kenneth C. Davis shows readers the real pioneer life in his trademark question-and-answer style. With cool quotes, fascinating sidebars, and lively illustrations by Renée Andriani, the West doesn't get any wilder than this.
