The Letters Through Time series is a wonderful way to read this unique story. Every chapter is a letter sent back east by a boy of 14 as he travels with his family along the Oregon Trail. Jacob Harding lives in a time when the west was wild and untamed, and it was big enough to find your destiny, and chase your dreams.
Traveling by covered wagon, the Harding’s journey is hard and long, but there's still room for laughter and danger both. The Oregon Trail was a fascinating time in history and it's even better when shared with a friend who is making the journey.
Ellen Anthony is the award-winning author of the Syran novels (science fiction) and the creator of Letters Through Time.
