Surviving the Oregon Trail Book Excerpt:

In the nineteenth century, over half a million men, women and children traveled west on the Oregon Trail. Stretching two thousand miles from Independence Missouri, to the Pacific Northwest, the Oregon Trail was the longest overland route used in the westward expansion. Crossing mountains and deserts, fighting disease, short of both food and water, pioneers endured many hardships to follow the trail west with their hopes and dreams of seeking fortunes in the unsettled west. Author Rebecca Stefoff traces the roots of the Oregon and California Trails back to the seventeenth century, telling the stories of those who left the security and comfort of their homes, to endure months of hard travel in the hope of a new life.

This western love story begins on a horse farm in Manassas VA, where there is a fierce civil war battle going on just over the hill. As the story develops it reveals elements of intrigue, high drama, romance, passion and love. After her home is destroyed by cannon fire and her parents die, Martha, the protagonist, survives a brutal rape attempt. My hands tightened on the pitchfork. “You bastard! You don't touch me!” Overcome with rage, resentment, hurt, despair, and hate, I plunged the pitchfork at him again, going deep in his chest.” “Oh no, what have I done!” She decides to join up with a wagon train and head west to Oregon to find herself, and to hopefully reinvent herself. She is joined on the Oregon trail by six women who are running away from life threatening abusive situations. One by one, they join up with the wagon train headed for Oregon, the land of opportunity. Six enthralling stories unfold about true love, and courage. This has become recognized as a classical love story that surpasses the complexities and high emotions previously found only in immensely passionate epics such as “Gone with the Wind”.
