Where the Trail Ends: Book Review

Where the Trail Ends
Star Rating
Earl Weirich - Book Critic

Award-winning author Melanie Dobson's book, Where the Trail Ends, set in the mid 1800s, tells of the adventurous--but extremely dangerous--months-long wagon train journey along the Oregon Trail, heading from Ohio to that far western state.

The focus of the story is on the Waldron family, especially on the daughter, Samantha, 18, traveling with her father and her seven-year-old brother. They still are mourning the loss of her mother who had died shortly before they set off on the trip. Midway along the way Samantha's father is attacked by a vicious bear, leaving him critically wounded and the family stranded. Their trust in the Lord and some surprising help enable them to complete the journey.

It's a gripping story based on historic records of what actually took place during that period.
