"Cry of the West" is a refreshing story of amazing pioneer spirit, and there is enough romance for the genre.
If you have the pioneer sp..Show More »irit or have ever wondered what life was like for people in 1866 traveling the Oregon Trail you should enjoy "Cry of the West". The journey begins in Missouri and crosses Kansas, Nebraska, Wyoming, Idaho, to reach their destination in Oregon.
Verna Clay is a wonderful story teller, she really did her research when it came to the Oregon Trail, she brings the trip west to life creating in our minds a reality of joining a Wagon Train and experiencing the beauty and hardships of a five month journey. With the reading talent of Crystal Sershen you're made to feel like you are riding in the wagon with Halle and Tim or riding along side Cooper, the main characters in the story, while interacting with other families in the wagon train with the same hopes and dreams: the pious preacher's wife and her followers, the painted ladies, etc.
I recommend Cry of the West if you're looking for wholesome romantic entertainment.
