I read this series as a kid back when they were originally published. I remember I used to but then at Sam's Club. I loved every one I read but this one was my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE. I read it so many times the pages were falling out and the bookmark ribbon was in strings. ( )

Across the Wide and Lonesome Prairie: The Oregon Trail Diary of Hattie Campbell is a wonderful story written in diary form. Hattie's entries make the reader feel like they are on the trail with her. She talks about the difficulties and fears she has on the long trek to Oregon. This book does bring to life the harsh conditions and the trying times everyone faced. Death, hunger, dust are just a few of the challenges she faces. ( )
