    It is 1848, and Francis Tucket is heading west on the Oregon Trail with his family. Yesterday he celebrated his 14th birthday on the tailgate of a Conestoga wagon in the foothills of the Rockies. Today, he is going to practice with his new birthday present, a Lancaster rifle. Falling far behind the wagon train, Francis loses sight of his family and is kidnapped by Pawnee Indians.

    Boy coming-of-age on the frontier

    Excellent book. Easy to listen to, and I wanted to continue reading it!

    In 1848, fourteen-year-old Francis Tucket was kidnapped from an Oregon-bound wagon train by a Pawnee hunting party. But a one-armed mountain man named Mr. Grimes quickly rescued him and hid him from the hostile tribe. After a year in the mountain wilderness with Mr. Grimes, Francis decides to strike out on his own—to follow the dangerous trail to Oregon and find his family. Francis thinks he can handle just about anything—buffalo stampedes, gun-toting outlaws, and even the constant threat of tribal attacks.

    enjoyable book

    I liked it would read many more books in this story when I finish this one
