Summary

Three generations of the Brown women travel west together on the Oregon Trail, but each seeks something different. When the trail divides, a decision must be made that could bring survival or tragedy. The challenges faced will form the character of one woman - and impact the future for many more.

Drama, adventure, and family struggles abound as three generations head west on the Oregon Trail.

When Tabitha Brown's son makes the fateful decision to leave Missouri and strike out for Oregon, she refuses to be left behind. Despite her son's concerns, Tabitha hires her own wagon to join the party. Along with her reluctant daughter and her ever-hopeful granddaughter, the intrepid Tabitha has her misgivings. But family ties are stronger than fear.

The trials they face along the way will severely test Tabitha's faith, courage, and ability to hope. With her family's survival on the line, she must make the ultimate sacrifice, plunging deeper into the wilderness to seek aid. What she couldn't know was how this frightening journey would impact how she understood her own life - and the greater part she has to play in history.

With her signature attention to detail and epic style, New York Times best-selling author Jane Kirkpatrick invites listeners to travel the deadly and enticing Oregon Trail. Based on actual events, This Road We Traveled will inspire the pioneer in all of us.

Powerful story

First time reading this author's books and now I'll look for more! The description of the Oregon Trail in the 1840s had me right there biting my nails and totally gripped. Read really well by the narrator

Brillant Book!

I live in Brownsville and work in Salem Oregon... love every one of her books but this one especially stood out to me. Gave me a new appreciation for our pioneers.

This book should come under the genre of Christian novel

I found this book used a great deal of religious content to tell the story. It has dozens if not triple-digit religious references such as quoting prayers and reciting scriptures as well as continuous references to God and the Christian faith. The amount of religious content in this book should qualify it as a Christian novel or at least come with some sort of warning. I felt like I was in Sunday School. However, the story, minus the religion, was a good one and I liked it. But I felt like I got ripped-off; I thought I was buying a novel about pioneer life but instead I paid to be proselytized.
