Review: Rescue on the Oregon Trail

Rescue on the Oregon Trail (Ranger in Time, #1)

Ranger just wants to dog for bones in the yard and chase squirrels. But when he comes across a metal box that's certainly not a bone, something changes. Instantly he's transported back in the time. He's not sure what's happening to him or where Luke is - but a boy needs his helping finding his sister.

Ranger can do that. He sniffs her out. He assumes his job is done, but he remains in the 1850s. The grateful family invite him on their trip with them. Without Luke, Ranger isn't sure what to do. But he doesn't want to leave the only people he knows, so he follows them.

He helps them along the way, wondering how he's going to get back home.
My Thoughts: I really enjoyed this book. It reminded me of the computer game we played as kids. I checked for a picture - and this is one of the first ones that came up. As Babymouse would say - Typical.

This book had everything I remember from the game. Getting supplies, crossing the rivers, sickness, and making hard choices because of the weather and timing.  I really liked Sam and his family. I loved Ranger throughout the story. I love how he gets distracted by squirrels! I wanted to give him a giant hug. He was so brave and so helpful. I can't wait to see where he goes next. Lots of action and danger in this book, which made me turn the pages to see what happened next.

Cover Thoughts: Cute!
