    My Grandma spent years in used bookstores collecting all 24 books in this Wagons West series I remember them lined up on the bookshelf in the boys room of her house When I was in 9th grade my cousin Laura and I decided to read them and we enjoyed that it was like a grown up version of The Little House on the Prairie They were clean and wholesome books with history than we expected I didn't get past the 7th book because the story lines were pretty repetitive but I feel nostalgic about the series all the same When Grandma died two years ago I asked if they could set aside these books for Laura and I but I was too latethe books were goneLast week I went to an amazing used bookstore for the very first time What did I find on one of the first shelves I saw?? This book of course Even though this is the fifth book in the series I decided to go ahead and read it The first four books are about the Oregon Trail; in this book the story kind of starts over there's a dispute over territory with Mexico in the newly independent Texas state They need settlers in the area to help the US cause so some of the Oregon Territory's newest residents head on over Some people can't get enough of the unknown and have to keep moving I guess This by the way was my issue with the series the first time I read it I can understand heading west once for the dream of land of your own But once they reach Oregon the characters seem to say come on we have to help claim Texas; come with me there's gold in California; lets do it again cause they found gold in Colorado too; silver in Nevada I'll be right there It's than unbelievable that the same people would be part of all these events At this point in time I'll suspend disbelief and hold on to nostalgia Reading this book takes me back to that little one room cabin we had the place I did much of my reading in those days and it makes me feel connected to Grandma again I can't wait to find the rest of the books in this seriesUpdate Just finished the book last night and happened to have time to go to my new favorite used bookstore today I stumbled upon three books in the seriesone of which is the next one to read California I'm not going to start it right away When these books were published it looks like one was released every six months so I should wait at least that long to read them That's going to be the only way I'll get though them I won't realize how similar it is to the previous book if it has been a while since I've read it This has just become a 12 year project I guess

    A 35 cent book from the outdoor table at a bookstore A 9 hour bus journey These went very well together The book written in 1980 did cause me to note how times and perspectives have changed Few see Andrew Jackson as a hero for example nowadays The book is unabashedly about the experiences of white settlers No hint of the abolitionist issue appears although that was certainly an American political issue by 1845But read the book for what it does tell you about American history in that period I had never seen the connection between policy in the Oregon Territory and the annexation of the Republic of Texas I hereto admit that Polk Tyler and Taylor were scarcely distinguished in my mind It is certainly interesting to see the discussion of Austin and try to place the locations in a modern context The 49th parallel versus the 54'40 parallel border is something I vaguely knew about but now better understand The characters are reasonably if not outstandingly drawn I tend to think the author a male pseudonym read on Wikipedia was sympathetic to women but obviously could not give them full blown military or political rolesRead the book to get insight into how American history was traditionally taught and into US and Texan history

    This is a good book for readers who enjoy historical fiction It helped refresh my memory of the Mexican American War and events leading to Texas becoming a state It's also a bit of a tribute to Sam Houston and Zachary TaylorThe Wagons West series is like a soap opera set in the old west In addition to bringing real historical personalities to life Houston Taylor Polk Winfield Scott the book also keeps the main fictional characters from Oregon with some having much larger roles than others Lee Cathy Blake To bring excitement to the reader the author introduces a few new characters both good and badWhat I truly liked about this book is how the author brought two boys who were kids in the first two books to maturity in this one Chet Harris started the series as a youth and member of the original wagon train He becomes and remains best friends with Danny Taylor another boy that Whip Holt and other train leaders free from being bound to an angry man who purchased Danny after he was orphaned in what I think was book two At the behest of President Polk Harry Canning is escorted to Texas from Oregon to organize and create a ship building operation for the US Navy in Galveston Chet and Danny make the decision to accompany and help Mr Canning with this endeavor Throughout their time in Texas the author places these two young men in various situations that allow the reader to see their growth and development in character It's a good sub storyline that doesn't disappointThe reason I gave it three stars instead of four is kind of lame After traveling thousands of miles on a wagon train to make Oregon my residence it would be very difficult to persuade me to leave Oregon for Texas I'm a native of Texas and lived there for ten years and experienced its climate just not between 1844 and 1847 It's not a bad state but given the choice between Oregon and Texas I would choose Oregon hands down So when Nancy and Melissa decide to stow away and join the expedition to Texas with Harry Canning Chet Danny and a few others I'm thinking those girls are crazy But then if they didn't insert themselves into the adventure then the story would lose part of its structureOverall it's an interesting book that keeps the reader engaged There is closure with some of the characters and a hint of what the future may hold for others California is the next book in the series but I think I'm due for a rom com

    It had been over a decade since I read Book 4 in this series and I was afraid that I wouldn't remember anything from the previous books Not at all it was like returning home to old friends and some new ones too This is the story of Texas becoming a part of the US and some of the early settlers to the rugged territory It has your historical figures Sam Houston Winfield Scott Zachary Taylor etc but then there are those like the Blakes and Rick Milles and MacGregors that epitomize all the regular citizens that banded together to establish the Republic and then the state A great tale of the old west and those who built it

    Like old friends this series is so easy to slip into Learned a lot about how Texas became a state and all of that and saw many of the characters in the previous book continue to grow Nice books to cleanse the brain after reading books that average about 1000 pages My only real complaint is this Why the harleuin romance covers??? These books are so much but the covers are actually an embarrassment
