Book Beginnings: The Oregon Trail

Book Beginnings on Friday is a meme hosted by Gilion at Rose City Reader. Anyone can participate; just share the opening sentence of your current read, making sure that you include the title and author so others know what you're reading.

The Oregon Trail: A New American Journey by Rinker Buck

"I had known long before I rode a covered wagon to Oregon that naivete was the mother of adventure."

I would very much agree with this statement. There are a lot of things we wouldn't have done, had we truly known what we were getting into at the start. But c'mon, who doesn't know that driving a covered wagon from Missouri to Oregon would be rather difficult?

Love that sentence.

Can you imagine traveling in a covered wagon? It had to be awful.

I just finished book where a wagon train left for the West. Lots of hardships.

Thanks for sharing...ENJOY your weekend.
