Your going to read about the about the Oregon Trail. The pioneers faced many hardships and challenges on their way, but they never backed down.


The pioneers had LOTS of supplies. They had to put food, water, clothes, valuables, and tools in one wagon. Usually, two oxen pulled the wagon. Sometimes though, horses or mules pull the wagon. They had to use pistols to kill animals.
