    1 thought on “Texas!”

    1. 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 more history than we expected. I didn't get past the 7th book because the story lines were pretty repetitive, but I feel nostalgic ab [...]

    2. 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 1845.But read the book for what it does tell you about American history in that [...]

    3. Fifth in the series. The Oregon pioneers are asked to rush to Texas to help the area attain statehood. Mexicans are threatening war because they want the area. Harry Canning, Danny Taylor and Chet Harris are escorted to Texas by Texas Ranger Rick Miller. Making the trip as stowaways are Nancy Canning and Mellisa Austin. Harry establishes a ship building business to get ships built for the navy. Lee Blake, his wife Cathy and their daughter Beth also make the trip after a brief visit to Washington [...]

    4. I love this series. It starts with the first wagon train to Oregon. Now we are in Texas. Sam Houston is President of the Republic of Texas and wants to become a state. Trying to do everything he can to get things rolling before Santa Ana decides to declare war and take Texas back for Mexico.Harry Canning is rushed to start the first shipyard and build the first Navy. Lee Blake and family join up with a wagon train to Texas and he takes over as eyes and ears for the military. Meanwhile a crazy ma [...]

    5. The next instalment in Dana Fuller Ross's epic story of the first wagon train crossing, and successive trips from Independence to Oregon, and onwards. This time, the state is Texas as the US government struggles to purchase it, and deal with the president of Mexico, at the same time. Told from the points of view of a few officers, and their families in the army, plus individual pioneers, and their families, on the trip to Texas, this book like the others, with a mixture of fiction, and factual p [...]

    6. 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 harlequin romance covers??? These books are so much more, but the covers are actually an embarrassment.

    7. Another reread for me.As I continue to reread this series, more and more I get frustrated with how badly written most of the characters are. Each character only seems to be one thing - either smart, or brave, or heroic (for the men) and the women are all either vain, stupid, or immature (notice a trend here?). In each book in the series, all the military men are perfect, with one token bad guy who always seems to be a spy, and almost always ends up painfully dying in the latter part of the book. [...]

    8. Many references and characters from previous books recalling their Oregon wagon trip. It did not ruin the reading. Nice how the Oregon and Missouri wagons both could have interesting travel adventures. Made the famous political people likable. The Scottish family was so nice while adding some humor. Easy to see that many characters will be on the California wagon trail next. Enjoyed Ranger Rick with his subtle ways of helping, Elisabeta with her ways to get out of a bad situation with helping in [...]

    9. This is the 5th book in the series. The first 4 covered the Oregon Trail and the subsequent settling of the Oregon Frontier.This book starts there but follows several folks to Texas and takes off from there. This is frontier Texas before it bacame a state. It started out slow and I even thought of putting it down but finally it got very interesting.I now look forward to #6 "California".

    10. May sound somewhat repetitive here but I got hooked on the first book and it was like an addiction.The author shows how the westward movement affected families and individuals while placing them within history itself.

    11. The narrator does a good job. I've done this set as written text and now working my way through audio version -- enjoying both. Overall, it's nice to piece together bits of history learned in school, albeit this is historical fiction. Enjoyable series of books.

    12. I heard the plan was to stop after Oregon but the books were so popular, she continued. This is the first of the rest of them. It seems a bit disconnected even though some of the characters are the same. Well, not really reading it for the story, more for the American history.

    13. I'm flying through these books so quickly. I love how some characters are recurring through the series!

    14. My least favorite of the series, took forever (100+ pages) just setting up the story. After that it moved at a much better pace and was enjoyable.

    15. I love this whole series of Wagons West and the settlement of the West by cavered wagon. I'm reading one at a time till I finish the whole series. Great way to learn the history of the west.
