Wagons Ho! Pioneers' Path to the West!: The Oregon Trail

SKU: 3130
$7.00Price

The 22-book American Milestone series is featured as "Retailers Recommended Fabulous Products" in the August 2012 edition of Educational Dealer magazine. Just imagine-riding for six months in a wagon, choking on dust, sweating in searing heat, crossing raging rivers, fighting off disease and Indians-the life of a pioneer on the Oregon Trail. Beginning in the 1840s, thousands of Americans took the risk... and lumbered across this seemingly endless trail to a life of promise in the west.

This book includes:
• What's in That Wagon? • Manifest Destiny • Perils Along the Trail • Into the Unknown • Who Were Those Pioneers • Bountiful Buffalo • Hands-on Activities • Reproducible Activities • Glossary • Fascinating Facts • Timeline • And Lots More!

Students can learn much from the compelling story of the overland pioneers who let nothing, and no one - including daunting Mother Nature, a vast, untamed wilderness, and hostilities of all kinds - stand in the way of their dreams and determination. Climb on up in your wagon and "bump along" in this fun, factual and "Wow-that's amazing" book!
