Voices from the oreg
  Bookman1954 | Oct 21, 2015 |
Fifteen members of a wagon train share their thoughts and experiences on an 1848 journey from Independence, Missouri, to Oregon City. Informative (especially the historical note) but the voices expressed in folksy free verse are not terribly distinctive. ( )

Learn about the courageous Americans who journeyed on the Oregon Trail in this picture book perfect for the Common Core

It’s 1848, and brave families band together in covered wagons to head west. Each spread introduces a different speaker to tell his or her part of the story: there’s Carl Hawks, son of the wagon train leader; Louisa Bailey, the newlywed; Chankoowashtay, a Sioux brave; and more. Like its acclaimed predecessor Colonial Voices, this book showcases a thrilling—and often dangerous—time in our history. Richly detailed illustrations bring the story of the great Westward Expansion to vivid life.

"An account of several families and individuals making the long and often dangerous trek across the United States from Missouri to the West Coast in the 1800s"--
