Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0688172768, Paperback)The Oregon Trail was full of danger and discomfort. Rides in the covered wagons were so bumpy that many pioneers preferred to walk, and hundreds died of cholera on the 2,000-mile journey. Still, thousand of men, women, and children pushed on in search of a new life. Here is the story of one family's inspiring adventure, told in the voice of an inquisitive ten-year-old. Jesse's diary is accompanied by games, recipes, authentic photographs, and a fold-out map to help young readers experience what it was like to live through an unforgettable time and place in American history.
