Voices From the Oregon Trail

Voices From the Oregon Trail

by Kay Winters

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.
