Opinion

From Library Staff

The Larkin family featured in this book is fictional, but the details about day to to day life on the trail are accurate. Learn how emigrants hitched their wagons, Native American tribes they encountered along the trail and what supplies were needed along the Oregon trail.

Drawing on diaries and letters, and illustrated with photos of actual objects from the past, "Daily Life in a Covered Wagon" explores what life was really like on the wagon train.
