4th book in the Wagons West series. The pioneers have finally reached Oregon after spending the winter in Wyoming. They build homes and plant crops. Some are ranchers, farmers, ship builders, blacksmiths. Lots of trades going on. The English commander is opposed to the settlers and causes some problems.

This book find Lee and Cathy Blake living in the army fort where Lee is the Commander. Whip and Eulalia Holt have settled on a ranch. Dr. Martin and Toni operate a small hospital. Ted Woods marrie
A Nice piece of Historical Fiction centering on the first large group of over 500 people traveling to and settling of the Pacific North West in 1839. I anticipated tales of struggling with Mother Nature and Native Americans but I also learned of the mutual land claims of the Territory by the British and Russians.
So far my favorite book in the series, and I liked it so much that I'm now eager to get to the next book. It was a little slow going at first, but once the wagon train actually reached Oregon and began to stake their claims and interact with the British settlement across the river, it picked up very quickly. There are many characters, but as the books go along their personalities seem to be evolving more and they're becoming more memorable, which makes me more vested in them. Whip Holt is still ...more

Excellent historical read. The wagon train has finally reached Oregon and this book covers the building of the settlement and arival of the second wagon train. Also covers the problems with the British and Russians.
The next book in the series is titled "Texas" so I am unsure what it will be about.

Didn't care for this one as much as the other series.
I am loving this series.
It amazes me how fast these folks are getting married. Oh, she looks at him and smiles then in the next chapter they are hitched!

I really did enjoy Oregon! It had more action and twists than the previous novels. And all the competition over Oregon was very interesting, the british, russians and americans all trying to settle and stake their claims.

Eulalia has always been annoying, I am hoping that now that she & Whip have worked out their problems she will stop being such a pain.
Audiobook: Boring. I really had to push myself to finish this one. Lots and lots of characters, after a while I didn't even try to remember who they were. Lots of politics going on while trying to claim the Oregon land. I hate politics, not too different then than it is now, corruption and conniving and power struggles. I think I will wait a while before starting the next one in the series.

Recommends it for: Fans of American Historic fiction
May sound somewhat repetitive here but I got hooked on the first book and it was like an addiction.
The author shows how the westward movement affected families and individuals while placing them within history itself.
Very good- The 1st wagon train going west is only a few months from Oregon. This is a wonderful series and would be good for the girls to read to learn history of our wagon trains settling the west.
This series gets more interesting all the time. I thought I'd read one or two before switching to something else, and later come back to this series. But I can't stop!
An interesting an informative story about the Russian, British and American claim to the Oregon territory. Enjoyed the audio book.
I love these books. I have always loved historical fiction. Great story!!
The stories continue to be o.k. but I'm enjoying reviewing American history.
Losing my interest now... Read the prior 3 books in Wagons West series.
Loved it since I live in Oregon! More American history that I love.
