The Oregon Trail - A True Book

Mel Friedman

Categories: Oregon

Resource Description

In 1843 nearly 1,000 men, women, and children gathered in a campground for covered wagons near Independence, Missouri. Excitement was in the air. These brave Americans were called pioneers. Soon they would be setting out on a long journey west… down the Oregon Trail.

How long was the Oregon Trail? How much was a beaver fur sold for in the 1800’s? How much did a covered wagon weigh? Why did people want to come to Oregon?

Find these answers and much more in this colorful book with wonderful images! This book will need to be returned.
