It Happened on the Oregon Trail
by Tricia Martineau Wagner
 
Many of the events along the Oregon Trail are well known—the perils of the Applegate family as they rafted down the raging Columbia River, the plight of the Donner Party as they found themselves snowbound and starving at Truckee Lake. But do you know the whole story?



It Happened on the Oregon Trail includes these events as well as many lesser-known happenings, providing insight about the adventurous emigrants who headed west in covered wagons in search of a better life.

These stories reveal the hardships and the joys of the 2,000-mile journey as the travelers left from the “jumping-off” cities along the Missouri River to cross the plains, mountains, deserts, and rivers to reach their final destinations in Oregon and California.
