In this book a boy named levi is on the oregon trail traveling to oregon as you might have guessed. This book is mainly about him and his brother sending letters back and forth and how they keep in contact with each other. this book also has a lot of grief and a lot of fun. I hope you enjoy this book.... I certainly enjoyed it. ( )

Austin has a brother called Levi and Austin has to go to Oregon to start a new life. But on his way to Oregon lots of things happen, and Austin writes all of those things to his brother. For example once Indians want to trade things with them and but Mr. Hickmann kills the women. At the end everything turns out good and Lucy, Charlotte and Mattie became his neighbors. I recommend this book for people who like a book that takes place in the 1800's, adventure and sad stories. ( )
