Publisher's Summary

Fifteen-year-old Francis Tucket has been searching for his parents ever since Pawnees kidnapped him from their wagon train on the Oregon Trail. He owes his survival to a one-armed mountain man, Jason Grimes, who came to his rescue. Now Francis owes his life to the mountain man once again. Unfortunately, it's a debt he'll never be able to repay. Grimes is killed defending Francis and his young friends, Lottie and Billy, from a band of marauding robbers.

As the three young people approach the end of their journey, they wonder if they can make it across the raging Columbia River. But a friendly young Indian offers Francis some good advice. Newbery Award-winning author Gary Paulsen skillfully juxtaposes exciting adventure with the dangers endured by pioneers on the Oregon Trail. This tale of heroism and courage is also a realistic look at the hardships endured by early settlers. John Randolf Jones' expert narration provides the perfect climax to this fifth and final book in the Francis Tucket saga.

    "Great story telling"

    The entire Tucket collection is wonderful. We travelled as a family from Michigan to the Northwest listening to the Tucket's stories as we actually drove along the Oregon trail. It was the best family vacation we ever had. Now My children are teenagers and we are listening again to the stories and reminiscing good family time.
