Go west, young man / William W. Johnstone and J. A. Johnstone.


Missouri, 1860. Rumors of war between the North and South are spreading across the land. In rural Green County, many of the farmers are already choosing sides. But not John Zachary. His loyalties lie with his family first--and his heart is telling him to go west. Hoping to build a new life in the fertile valleys of Oregon, he convinces his best friend, Emmitt Braxton, to pack up their families and join him on a wagon train across the Oregon Trail. The journey will be long and hard. The physical hardships and grueling mental challenges will bring out the best in the some--and the worst in others. But with the guidance of an experienced wagon master and scout, they are determined to reach their destiny, no matter how high the cost...Twenty-seven wagons. Twenty-seven different hopes and dreams. This sprawling epic novel from these master storytellers captures the beauty and danger of the American West--and the pioneer spirit of those who tamed it.
