    1 thought on “Nebraska!”

    1. I am enjoying this series. Fun reads. I like the characters who are strong and wise which is what I am guessing many of the the frontier pioneers were. They had to be in order to travel from the east coast to the west in a covered wagon. Nothing short of a miracle.

    2. I am really enjoying re-reading this series. This boo finds the wagon train heading through the Great Plains. Lee Blake is sent by President Van Bruen to help with problems from the Russians and English who both want to stake their claim in the Oregon territory before America claims it. Eulalia Woodling is captured by Indians and used as a slave until Whip Holt reduces her by giving the chief the skin of a white buffalo.At the end of Nebraska, Whip's common law Indian mate arrives which devastat [...]

    3. The narration in this audiobook was fine. The story itself was a disappointing sequel. Many of the elements I winked at in the first book began to grate--treating 19th century Russia like 1970s Cold War Soviet Union (among other things, there was discussion about "defecting"? Did immigrants "defect" in those days?), disturbing portrayal of Native Americans, and--if it were possible--the already stereotypical characters from the first book ("Independence") became LESS complex than before! The nex [...]

    4. This is book #2 in a series about the first wagon train heading to the Oregon Territory in the 1830's. Very readable, it contains interesting interesting historical references which may or may not be true, may or may not be cliché, may or may not be offensively sterotypical.While a little predictable and formulaic, the author does a good job balancing the need to retain characters from the previous book, while adding a few new ones. Not exactly shortlisted for Man Booker, but still a fun divers [...]

    5. Our favorite Oregon pioneers continue to head west, despite the great challenges facing them - freezing winters, hostile Native Americans, buffalo stampedes, crazy weather, etc Anyone remember playing the old Oregon Trail computer game in the 80s? I feel like this is the book form. I've really enjoyed reading about their adventures and will definitely continue on with the series. There are some great new characters in this book, along with favorites from the first in the series.

    6. Great characters! I am really enjoying rereading this series and enjoying the fictional history lesson. God, they had to work so hard. This one had a lot more killing than the previous one but I guess that is to be expected now that they are in the wilderness. It really creeped me out when ____________ was scalped alive!

    7. Just finished book 2 and it was basically more of the same from the first book which was expected. Don't know why I have started this series (because I remember it as a child???), but it's a fun, quick, no thinking kind of book that just sets me up to read something else. Kind of like a mind purge. Will read a couple of other books and then back to Wagons West.

    8. The pioneers continue west. I'm a little behind, this series is kind of old but I love American history and I am amazed at the bravery of folks who went out in a little wagon with a cloth roof and the hardships they endured. The stories are so-so but I like the history.

    9. 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.

    10. I have pretty much the exact same thoughts about this book as I did the first.I'm rereading the series, and enjoying it, even though it's largely lacking not only in historical accuracy, but in a historical "feel" as well. The plot is light, but I can't put down the series.

    11. In spite of myself I am caught up enough in this story to continue reading the series. Love the historical parts and the how people lived parts, but, the romance parts, not so much. Although I realized love and marriage happened along the way, it was just too predictable.

    12. I liked independence a little better but I still loved this one I just wish the characters were more developed in this one I felt like I was stuck in mud a few times reading this one but still a great book from a hell of a series!! Happy reading!!

    13. Although this Series suffers a bit from it's Age, I still found it an enjoyable Read, as was the first book, Independence! A vivid portrayal of the experience of the First Pioneers to settle the West, with interesting characters & entwined plots.

    14. I enjoyed learning about how and why American settlers traveled in covered wagons to the West. It is fascinating to read about the hardships, teamwork, and threats along the way. Very engaging characters keep the pages turning.

    15. An excellent adventure. Every time I travel west across the vast plains of Kansas and Eastern Colorado towards the Rockies and beyond, I imagine what life would be like as an American pioneer. This series gives great insight to those that bravely explored before us.

    16. Very good story of the first wagon train to Oregon, politics and the demise of the Western tribes.

    17. My home state is Nebraska and picking up this book at a library in NE was what got me reading the series. I enjoyed continuing the story of the pioneers and the references to the people of the area.

    18. Interesting book. I enjoyed the details of the daily life that the pioneers faced. At times I wished for a deeper look into the thoughts of the characters.

    19. In this, the second book of the series we are back on the Oregon Trail in a Wagon train of some 500 pioneers. Very well written. I have already ordered book #3 and #4 of the series.

    20. Narrator does a great job with this series. Plus I enjoyed the series when I read it in hard copy a couple decades ago.

    21. Great characters and story telling in this book. There is something in here for historians, romantics, dreamers and thinkers. I am looking forward to part three of the Wagons West series.

    22. Audiobook: Obviously this part of the wagon train to Oregon is all about the plains and the indians. It's truly amazing how much courage the original settlers had I find it all very interesting.
