Summary
Three generations of the Brown women travel west together on the Oregon Trail, but each seeks something different. When the trail divides, a decision must be made that could bring survival or tragedy. The challenges faced will form the character of one woman—and impact the future for many more
Summary
Though her son thinks she's too feeble to make the rough Oregon Trail journey, 66-year-old widow Tabitha "Tabby" Moffat Brown disagrees. Hiring her own wagon and heading out from Missouri with her elderly brother-in-law, Tabby joins other family members making the trek, including her reluctant daughter and her forward-thinking granddaughter. Facing life-threatening danger and other obstacles, Tabby and the others try to keep their faith. Based on the life of the real Tabby (who's known as the "mother of Oregon" and was a founder of Pacific University), This Road We Traveled is a thoroughly researched, engaging tale. -- Description by Dawn Towery
