This was a delightful and quick read about one family’s journey on the Oregon trail. I love seeing the main character learn to love his family, overcome difficult obstacles and keep hope alive.

I read every single one of these as a child, time and time again; as an adult I have sought them out as treasured mementoes of my childhood. These books, the adventures and places they took me and the history I learned from them; they WERE my childhood!

They can be hard to find, but THANK GOD publishers are beginning to re-publish many editions from the series and believe you me I am buying them in book form AND on my Kindle.

If you have children or nieces and nephews, BY every book in this series

My rating is based on a nostalgic 1963 (3rd grade) love for this book and the series it was a part of.
I had a wonderful third grade teacher and I read quite a few of the "We Were There .... " books.
However, the characters in these books would most likely not be embraced by today's youth. For that reason, a rating of * or ** is probably more appropriate.
