    The Journey West Without the Cliches

    I am generally uninterested in tales of the great trek West, but I picked this up because it was the 1950 Pulitzer Prize winner. I was pleasantly surprised at the interesting tale, along with several insightful characters representing various attitudes and expectations about the journey. Much of the dialogue is witty, and the descriptions of the unchartered territory are great.

    My Review

    The Way West is a very enjoyable yet realistic portrayal of a group of settlers moving west. These settlers are tired of there old lives and wish to get a fresh start in Oregon. Along the way, each character of the book changes. Lije, a mild, self-conscience person that doesn't say much, realizes that he has more leadership abilities than he ever gives himself credit for. Dick Summers realizes that he longs for his past back. Brother Weatherby, a Methodist priest, learns what serving the Lord is really about. This book will put you right back in mid-1800's America alongside believable, interesting characters that will make you want to read on.

    Highly recommended

    A very interesting and insightful tale of the migration of families to the wild west. The syntax was most unusual in that it was difficult to connect some of the words to modern day usage.

    The native Indian threat did not seem to be as harsh as has often been stated in other works of fiction.

    I doubt that if the book had been written in this century the use of derogatory ethnic language would not appear.
