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
