Publisher's Description

Based on their extensive research into personal accounts of the Oregon Trail, comic authors David Lasky and Frank Young have created a graphic narrative of one family's epic journey. The main character is an 11-year-old girl whose family sets course for the West to seek new opportunities and to escape the eastern city where they had been living. Oregon Trail reveals all of the planning, equipment, and logistics that went into traveling across an untamed continent in the 1800s. In addition to its visualization of the family's journey, the book features a series of two-page spreads detailing a visual inventory of everything the family took with them, including the parts of a covered wagon and a personally annotated map of the trail. Readers get a ground-level feel for what it was like to be part of this storied migration west-not a dry recitation of dates and facts, but an immediately memorable living history.

Author Bio

Frank Young and David Lasky both live in Seattle.

Editorial Reviews

This is a story with action and pizzazz: SMASH! THUD! GRRRRRR... typical cartoon sound effects abound as the overland party fords rivers, meets with Indians, hunts game, crosses treacherous mountains, and copes with drought, disease, and heart-wrenching loss. There is plenty of historical information packed into these energetic pages, but kids are so busy being entertained they won't resist being educated at the same time - heck, they won't even notice!
Bellingham Herald

Simple paneling makes this graphic novel easy to read, even for novices to the format. A good addition as an introduction to an Oregon Trail unit or for supplemental materials on the subject.
