From the PublisherThis 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!
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.
