My Grandma spent years in used bookstores collecting all 24 books in this Wagons West series I remember them lined up on the bookshelf in the boys room of her house When I was in 9th grade, my cousin Laura and I decided to read them, and we enjoyed that it was like a grown up version of The Little House on the Prairie They were clean and wholesome books, with history than we expected I didn t get past the 7th book because the story lines were pretty repetitive, but I feel nostalgic about the se [...]

A 35 cent book from the outdoor table at a bookstore A 9 hour bus journey These went very well together The book, written in 1980, did cause me to note how times and perspectives have changed Few see Andrew Jackson as a hero, for example, nowadays The book is unabashedly about the experiences of white settlers No hint of the abolitionist issue appears, although that was certainly an American political issue by 1845.But read the book for what it does tell you about American history in that period [...]

Like old friends, this series is so easy to slip into Learned a lot about how Texas became a state and all of that and saw many of the characters in the previous book continue to grow Nice books to cleanse the brain after reading books that average about 1000 pages My only real complaint is this Why the harlequin romance covers These books are so much , but the covers are actually an embarrassment.

The author managed to make another wagon train across the U.S evil villains, cowboys and Indians, etc, very interesting.even in the face of leaving behind a lot of his favorite characters.

Another reread for me.As I continue to reread this series, and I get frustrated with how badly written most of the characters are Each character only seems to be one thing either smart, or brave, or heroic for the men and the women are all either vain, stupid, or immature notice a trend here In each book in the series, all the military men are perfect, with one token bad guy who always seems to be a spy, and almost always ends up painfully dying in the latter part of the book And usually the w [...]

Many references and characters from previous books recalling their Oregon wagon trip It did not ruin the reading Nice how the Oregon and Missouri wagons both could have interesting travel adventures Made the famous political people likable The Scottish family was so nice while adding some humor Easy to see that many characters will be on the California wagon trail next Enjoyed Ranger Rick with his subtle ways of helping, Elisabeta with her ways to get out of a bad situation with helping in the m [...]

This is the 5th book in the series The first 4 covered the Oregon Trail and the subsequent settling of the Oregon Frontier.This book starts there but follows several folks to Texas and takes off from there This is frontier Texas before it bacame a state It started out slow and I even thought of putting it down but finally it got very interesting.I now look forward to 6 California.

May sound somewhat repetitive here but I got hooked on the first book and it was like an addiction.The author shows how the westward movement affected families and individuals while placing them within history itself.

The narrator does a good job I ve done this set as written text and now working my way through audio version enjoying both Overall, it s nice to piece together bits of history learned in school, albeit this is historical fiction Enjoyable series of books.

I heard the plan was to stop after Oregon but the books were so popular, she continued This is the first of the rest of them It seems a bit disconnected even though some of the characters are the same Well, not really reading it for the story, for the American history.

My least favorite of the series, took forever 100 pages just setting up the story After that it moved at a much better pace and was enjoyable.
