Martha of California

James Otis

Embark on an unforgettable odyssey with Martha, a spirited Missourian setting her sights on the golden allure of California. Narrated through the eyes of this determined young lady, James Otis crafts a vivid tapestry of the challenges faced on the Oregon Trail. As Martha's family ventures forth in their covered wagon, they confront the very essence of the wild frontier: intense standoffs with native tribes, daring night traversals across deserts and salt fields, hunting escapades, and the relentless struggles of managing livestock and supplies.


Step into Martha's shoes, and experience firsthand the resilience, camaraderie, and sheer willpower that shaped the stories of countless pioneers seeking a new beginning.
