Lead Me Home by Theresa Hupp

In 1847, Caleb "Mac" McDougall, a young Bostonian, seeks adventure on the Oregon Trail. As he passes through Missouri, he rescues Jenny Calhoun, a lonely girl in trouble.

To join a wagon train bound for Oregon, Mac and Jenny pose as a married couple. On the arduous six-month trek, they confront raging rivers, rugged mountains, and untrustworthy companions. Together, Mac and Jenny face the best and worst in themselves and in each other, while discovering the beauty and danger of the western frontier.

Fans of Lonesome Dove and True Grit will enjoy Lead Me Home--a gripping saga of courage, sacrifice, and enduring friendship.

"Lead Me Home is a riveting story of the westward movement. . . . A not to be missed novel about the strength of character and infinite bravery and determination of our ancestors." Pamela Boles Eglinski, author of Return of the French Blue and She Rides with Genghis Khan

In addition, Theresa has published short works in Chicken Soup for the Soul, Mozark Press, and Kansas City Voices. She is a member of the Kansas City Writers Group, Missouri Writers Guild, Oklahoma Writers Federation, Inc., and Write Brain Trust.

Lead Me Home is a riveting story of the westward movement. It lends a first hand image of life on a wagon train -- for six months! I feel the dust in my teeth and grit in my hair. But dust was the least of the travelers' problems. This is a not to be missed novel about the strength of character and infinite bravery and determination of our ancestors. Perfect for reading to younger children and ideal for those who love stories of settling the western states. Thoroughly enjoyed.

The courage and resourcefulness of the Western emigrants was amazing -- this book brings their struggles to life. The author does a great job of developing an interesting cast of characters and really knows her history. Highly recommended.
