Bound for Oregon

Editors: Puffin Books

You'll find excellent historical fiction between the covers of Bound for Oregon. Mary Ellen Todd’s family is taking the long trek on the Oregon Trail. Crossing rough terrain and avoiding hostile Indians are only part of the challenge they will face. Will they complete their journey? If so, will Oregon fulfill their dreams?

Set in the mid 19th century, Van Leeuwan's story is crafted with a first-person narrative from the nine-year-old Mary Ellen that not only enables readers to experience the adventures and perils of the westward expansion, but also helps them see the value of persevering and working together.
