    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, withhistory than we expected I didn t get past the 7th book because the story lines were pretty repetitive, but I feel nostalgic ab 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, withhistory than we expected I didn t get past the 7th book because the story lines were pretty repetitive, but I feel nostalgic about the series all the same When Grandma died two years ago, I asked if they could set aside these books for Laura and I, but I was too latethe books were gone.Last week, I went to an amazing used bookstore for the very first time What did I find on one of the first shelves I saw This book of course Even though this is the fifth book in the series, I decided to go ahead and read it The first four books are about the Oregon Trail in this book the story kind of starts over there s a dispute over territory with Mexico in the newly independent Texas state They need settlers in the area to help the US cause, so some of the Oregon Territory s newest residents head on over Some people can t get enough of the unknown and have to keep moving, I guess This, by the way, was my issue with the series the first time I read it I can understand heading west once, for the dream of land of your own But once they reach Oregon, the characters seem to say come on, we have to help claim Texas come with me, there s gold in California lets do it again, cause they found gold in Colorado too silver in Nevada, I ll be right there It sthan unbelievable that the same people would be part of all these events At this point in time, I ll suspend disbelief and hold on to nostalgia Reading this book takes me back to that little one room cabin we had the place I did much of my reading in those days and it makes me feel connected to Grandma again I can t wait to find the rest of the books in this series Update Just finished the book last night and happened to have time to go to my new favorite used bookstore today I stumbled upon threebooks in the seriesone of which is the next one to read California I m not going to start it right away When these books were published, it looks like one was released every six months, so I should wait at least that long to read them That s going to be the only way I ll get though them I won t realize how similar it is to the previous book if it has been a while since I ve read it This has just become a 12 year project I guess

    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 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 I had never seen the connection between policy in the Oregon Territory and the annexation of the Republic of Texas I hereto admit that Polk, Tyler, and Taylor were scarcely distinguished in my mind It is certainly interesting to see the discussion of Austin and try to place the locations in a modern context The 49th parallel versus the 54 40 parallel border is something I vaguely knew about, but now better understand The characters are reasonably, if not outstandingly, drawn I tend to think the author a male pseudonym readon Wikipedia was sympathetic to women, but obviously could not give them full blown military or political roles.Read the book to get insight into how American history was traditionally taught and into US and Texan history

    Goodbye Oregon Hello Texas A few characters travel to Texas because that s what they do and we meet Rick Miller a new cooler version of Whip Holt Danny has grown up some and its nice to seeof this character

  10. says:

    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.
