Summary
In Patricia Hermes's Book Two of Joshua's journey West in 1848, we meet the young adventurer once again upon his arrival in Oregon where his new life will begin.

It is the fall of 1848, and Joshua and his family have finally arrived in Oregon. Excited about their new home, they choose a place to build and raise a farm. Though life out West is trying, and they must cope with losses and setbacks, they also experience great success and joy.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 3^-5. In this sequel to Westward to Home (2000) in the My America series, nine-year-old Joshua McCullough and his family have braved the Oregon Trail and arrived in the Willamette Valley in 1848. Unfortunately, they're just in time for the winter rains and floods, which lead to the accidental death of Joshua's beloved grandfather. Finally, spring arrives with the hope that life will improve. This follow-up doesn't quite stand alone; readers who didn't saddle up for the covered-wagon journey in the first book may feel that they have missed some important details about the characters presented here. But Joshua's brief diary entries are historically accurate and compelling, and he comes across as a believable character with real emotions. Hermes does a particularly good job of conveying Joshua's feelings after his grandfather's death; they serve as a reminder that human circumstances may change with the centuries, but human emotions change very little. --Todd Morning"
