Across the Wide and Lonesome Prairie: The Oregon Trail Diary of Hattie Campbell

We've all read stories about pioneers settling the American West in the 1800s --- think LITTLE HOUSE ON THE PRAIRIE. Here's another fascinating look at that era of history. Hattie Campbell and her family head West from Missouri to Oregon (along the Oregon Trail) in a covered wagon in 1847. They face many dangers including bad weather, disease and even death, but they stay brave and arrive safely after eight long months.
