In Patricia Hermes's second installment of Joshua's journey West in 1848, we meet the young adventurer once again upon his arrival in Oregon, where his new life will begin.

It is the fall of 1848, and Joshua and his family have finally arrived in Oregon. Excited about their new home, they choose a place to build and raise a farm. Though life out West is trying, and they must cope with losses and setbacks, they also experience great success and joy.
