I loved this book. Your style of writing is captivating and wonderful. I am a mother of 4 daughters ages 4-12. I read it out loud to them and they all enjoyed it. This is the stuff that is missing from so many children’s history books. Authors seem to feel they need to sacrifice historical accuracy to get a good story or sacrifice a good story for the facts. You do such a great job keeping both intact and fun.

I went to the website, opened my Nook and downloaded a copy, read it and was surprised how good it was. True to its topic.

A creatively told narrative of the Oregon Trail experience, Ollie Ox is a fun and educational e-book.
