What do buffalo, butter churns, and a mini-van have in common? A trip to Oregon, of course! In Wagons, Ho!, two girls move from Missouri to Oregon more than a century apart. Both girls will miss their old homes, but they’ll discover new adventures on the road. Readers will love this unique look at history as they empathize with the struggles of moving to a new town while learning about the trials of the Oregon Trail.
