Roughing It on the Oregon Trail (Time-Traveling Twins)

by Diane Stanley


Quick Overview

Aided by their grandmother's magic hat, twins Lenny and Liz and their grandmother travel back in time to 1843 to join a relative and her family on the Oregon Trail, describing the experience of seeing buffalo, fording rivers, and meeting Indians on their journey. Full-color illustrations.


What if you could close your eyes and open them to find you were amongst hundreds of pioneers in 1843, packing up your covered wagon to travel the 2,000 miles of the Oregon Trail? Meet twins Liz and Lenny and their unique grandmother, who, with the help of her magic hat, can transport the twins to any time in history. In their first journey, the twins spend eight months crossing the country on foot and by covered wagon, braving the mountain ranges and river valleys, battling floods and droughts, and cooking slam-johns and sowbellies over buffalo chips. Diane Stanley's spirited, humorous, and historically accurate depiction of day-to-day life on the Oregon Trail is brought to life with Holly Berry's energetic illustrations. Overflowing with fun, informative details, and word balloons that capture each piece of dialogue, young readers will be transported into an exciting page in American history alongside the adventurous Time-Traveling Twins. Size 0.2" H x 8.0" L x 9.8" W, 48 pages
