Across the Wide and Lonesome Prairie by Kristiana Gregory

Written in diary format by a twelve-year-old girl, Across the Wide and Lonesome Prairie tells of the trek along the Oregon Trail to a new home. It goes pretty much as playing Oregon Trail did in elementary school. A lot of people die, most of the animals die, wagons get swept away while fording the rivers, and so on. It’s a fun, easy read. The back contains historical information and pictures. I highly recommend it to kids learning about the pioneers and traveling west.
