    One thought on “Lucretia Ann on the Oregon Trail”

    1. An enjoyable read with a remarkably even-handed yet historically-accurate-feeling treatment of interactions with Indians. Lucretia Ann's cat manages to steal the show numerous times, getting her into trouble and adventures. There are some nice details about life on the road. It would be a fun book to read aloud and discuss with a small person.

    2. Read this series when I was a kid growing up in the Northwest. Interesting look at the westward movement through the eyes of a young girl. Wanted the set for my library and may re-read at some point. So many books so little time.
