All of our bargain books are brand new, perfectly readable and represent a tremendous value! The bargain books are, however, publisher overstocks and remainders that TRW purchases at deep discounts. As a result, they may have a small mark through the UPC bar code or a small mark on the side of the book. This is simply to mark the books so they cannot be sent back to a publisher. Because of this, bargain books are non returnable to TRW unless they are damaged. Please consider this before ordering.

Annotation: With today's the coast-to-coast connectivity, it is hard for young readers to imagine exactly how difficult and dangerous it was to set out by wagon to settle the West during the great migration of the 1800's. Using original photographs and archival material from the period, along with dynamic illustration and imaginative, historically accurate writing, this book explains the experiences, difficulties, and dangers faced by those early settlers. From daily life on the wagon train, to resupplying at forts, confrontations with Indians, treacherous mountain crossings, and constant struggle, this book gives contemporary readers a glimpse of the enormous challenges of America's Westward Expansion. At the back a complete timeline, glossary, and resources for further exploration will help young readers take their learning beyond the book as they imagine what life was like for those first settlers.
