Saddle up for excitement on the Oregon Trail! Way back in eighteen-fifty, when Americans were thrifty, The times were hard, so most folks had to toil; My mama, my pa and me labored hard to guarantee That we'd earn a living from the barren soil. In this rowdy adventure, the narrator and her parents and neighbors embark on a wild journey on the Oregon Trail, hoping to find rich green land out West. These hardy pioneers and their trusty leader, Buckskin Dan, fight off outlaws near Fort Laramie, rescue a lost Indian boy, and raft down the rocky Columbia River, eventually starting new lives in the fertile Willamette Valley. Readers young and old will relish Roy Gerrard's rollicking verse and distinctive illustrative style.
