ToastySpam | 2 comments Trying to remember a series I read in the latter half of the 2000s (although it was probably published earlier.

I'm fairly certain that the main character was called Tucker, and that each book was titled Tucker's Something (i.e. something like Tucker's Revenge).

In the first book, he is young, ignorant, and inexperienced, travelling on a wagon trail with his family. The group gets attacked by Native Americans, and he is the only one to escape. Then, over the course of the book, he trains to be able to shoot and survive in the wild - basically becoming a cowboy.

Annamariah | 283 comments I searched worldcat.org for juvenile fiction with keywords "western" and "wagon trail" and found a series called The Tucket Adventures by Gary Paulsen. The first book Mr. Tucket seems to fit your description. The rest of the series are Call Me Francis Tucket, Tucket's Ride, Tucket's Gold, and Tucket's Home.
