    When I first started this book, I was so not into it I stumbled along through the first 20 something pages, before it really pulled me in But one it did, I was hooked It was so good I loved Pepper and Gideon a...

    My sister and I joke about how darn depressing this series can be just read some of the titles The Dear Canada ones sound even worse I ll have to read some of those sometime But perhaps it s precisely because these books don t squirm away from the gritty details of history that I found them so compelling as a child Actually I think what I liked like about them has to do with the fact that I m fascinated by history not just dates and names and places, but about history as the stories of real people that had thoughts and emotions and ups and downs This series does a wonderful job of allowing readers to imagine living in the shoes of one of those individuals, and along the way discover that so much of who we are as people doesn t change So with that introduction, this book seems to be pretty depressing even by Dear America standards Within the first few pages, the protagonist s uncle falls off the roof and dies While trying to bury him, his coffin somehow floats down the river and is lost A passing boat captain feels sorry for them and offers to give the family free passage to anywhere they chose They take advantage of this offer by deciding to move to Oregon The free fare al...

    I enjoyed the story I am a huge fan of pretty much all Wagons Ho , fiction, unless it is really bad I found myself slightly annoyed It seems that the book was obviously trying to avoid the big SEX word, but kept mentioning things that you know involved sex I d rather the subject was ignored completly if you re going to have scenes like the ones where Hattie asks the new 14 year old brides what it s like to have a husband and they both blush redder than a red crayon I guess the only things they can come up with in their minds for Hattie is the stuff that makes a person blush I always find it very puzzling as to how these people determine womanhood and manhood If you re only 14 you re a child on Monday, but if you re still 14 and get married on Thursday then suddenly you re a man or a...

    I loved this book Our family had just moved from upstate New York to New Hampshire at the end of the summer of 2005 Our daughter Olivia asked me to read this book with her We started out reading this book together and one by one the rest of our family would gather to hear us read until it became the event of each evening or rainy weekend afternoon I think we were drawn to this story because in our own way, we had left everything behind family, friends, our...

    A diary from a young teen is a great way to tell of the struggles and joys of traveling the Oregon Trail You see first hand the dangers, the everyday pains such as feeling lonely when your friend is married and you are not You see children born, and children die The realness of the...

    I remember becoming interested in the Oregon Trail because of this diary and the excellent computer simulation, of course.

    Across the Wide and Lonesome Prairie The Oregon Trail Diary of Hattie Campbell is a really good historical book I would recommend this book for grades fourth through sixth It is the first Dear America book that I have read The story starts in the spring of 1847 It is a good depiction of how it was back then to ride a wagon train across the United States to start a new life There were several families who gathered in Independence, Missouri, where the Oregon Trail started They traveled northwest to Oregon to make new homesteads and a new life.Hattie Campbell and her family lived in Booneville, Missouri It was her father s dream of starting a new life with the family after Hattie s two sisters died from swamp fever One day, Hattie s Uncle Milton died from falling off the roof During the funeral, the coffin slid off the wagon and into the river A steamboat was coming around the corner making large waves and sucked the coffin into it s tall paddles Uncle Milton was lost forever The captain felt horrible and offered to take the fami...

    My first time reading this in probably 15 years, but it was my favorite Dear America book as a kid and it s still just as exciting and fun to plow through Told from the perspective of a 13 year old girl whose family decides to go to Oregon during the height of westward expansion in 1847, even though it s meant for younger readers, the book doesn t shy away ...
