It’s the day for a few sentences to tempt you to read a good book. I’m reading The Way West by A. B. Guthrie, Jr. It’s an excellent classic about traveling the Oregon Trail. Where am I?

The year is 1845 and I’m traveling from Independence, Missouri to free land in Oregon. It’s unbelievably hard work every day. Even though we have wagons, we are walking most of the way.

Here are a few sentence to give you a flavor of the book:

teasertuesdayThe question was, with wood getting scarce was it right and proper for the women to cook over fires made of buffalo chips? A tomfool like himself might think the women ought to have some say in the answer.
But no. The husbands would decide and go back to their wives, serious and wise, and tell them what was right. (page 88)

Update: I just finished the book and will have the review ready on Thursday.
