MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK
Samantha Waldron and her family face some horrific situations as we follow their journey on the Oregon Trail in 1842. Samantha’s mom passed away before they started on the trail, so her father was determined to make it to the end of the trail for the rest of his family. But no one knew the many difficult situations they would endure while traveling. Life was not easy as they traveled these many miles.
Melanie Dobson’s story of Samantha and her family along the Oregon Trail is a believable and intriguing story with believable characters that will keep you interested until the end, because of all the twists and turns it takes. The author tells all of the gruesome details of situations and difficulties during the trail, making the story seem more realistic.
I enjoyed this historical novel by Melanie Dobson, though I don’t think it is her best work. If you enjoy the Oregon Trail ere, and reading books about that time, you will enjoy this one. So pick up a copy for your own reading enjoyment.
