A Light in the Wilderness

book I read I really enjoyed reading more about the time period when families were travelling West. Three different women are focused on in the book. Letitia is a former slave who now has her papers to prove she is free. She marries a white Irish man, and they travel along with others. A second family is also travelling West.  Nancy Hawkins, the wife of a doctor, has young children that must make the journey to their new homes. Finally Betsy is a Kalapuya Indian living in Oregon Territory. Throughout the book we see these three women interact with one another as they form connections in their new homes in Oregon.
Although this book was a little slow at the beginning, I really enjoyed it and learning about all of the different women and the struggles they faced during that time in our history. Making it even more interesting is the fact that it’s based on a true story. You can visit this link to view a video about the book:
