Summary
When Tabitha Brown's son makes the fateful decision to leave Missouri and strike out for Oregon, she refuses to be left behind. Despite her son's concerns, Tabitha hires her own wagon to join the party. Along with her reluctant daughter and her ever-hopeful granddaughter, the intrepid Tabitha has her misgivings. The trials they face along the way will severely test Tabitha's faith, courage, and ability to hope. With her family's survival on the line, she must make the ultimate sacrifice, plunging deeper into the wilderness to seek aid
Summary
Though her son thinks she's too feeble to make the rough Oregon Trail journey, 66-year-old widow Tabitha "Tabby" Moffat Brown disagrees. Hiring her own wagon and heading out from Missouri with her elderly brother-in-law, Tabby joins other family members making the trek, including her reluctant daughter and her forward-thinking granddaughter. Facing life-threatening danger and other obstacles, Tabby and the others try to keep their faith. Based on the life of the real Tabby (who's known as the "mother of Oregon" and was a founder of Pacific University), This Road We Traveled is a thoroughly researched, engaging tale. -- Description by Dawn Towery
