Dear America: Across the Wide and Lonesome Prairie: The Oregon Trail Diary of Hattie Campbell, 1847
by Mary Pope Osborne
A compelling 'first person account' of the Oregon Trail journey. Thirteen-year-old Hattie Campbell records the details of her family's harrowing migration to Oregon in a covered wagon and describes the many challenges, both joyful and tragic, that mark the journey.
This book is part of the Dear America series---a series of fictional journal accounts by girls living in different times in American history. There is also a related series of fictional diaries written by boy characters---the My Name is America series. Both series are written in the form of historical fiction diaries and are fantastic to use when teaching American history or even diary/journal writing.
