In sixteen letters to a small town newspaper, two brothers traveling separate routes—one overland, one by sea—from New York to the Oregon Territory, in the mid-nineteenth century, tell the folks back home about their exciting—sometimes tragic—trips and give first impressions of their new frontier home. This book parallels and supplements the earlier Seven Months to Oregon: 1853.

Harold J. Peters is a retired science educator. His publications in that field include many instructional software applications in a variety of subject matter areas. In 1998 he began spending less time on science education and more on researching his family history. He soon focused on the literate Hines branch of the family, members of which left a substantial paper trail. Seven Months to Oregon: Revisited is the third book based on these materials and more such books are anticipated. When not immersed in his genealogical pursuits, Hal (he prefers this nickname which was also favored by his third great granduncle Harvey K. Hines) enjoys time with his family—wife Ellie, two daughters, two sons, grandson, and four siblings, along with their families. When no book deadline is pending, his piano also gets some attention. There Mozart reigns, but Bach, Chopin and others are also favored accomplices.
