In 1853, the Larkin family loaded their covered wagon and headed west on the Oregon trail in search of a new life. How did they do it? What did they eat? How did they dress? How did they survive sickness or attacks from cattle thieves? Drawing on diaries and letters, and illustrated with photos of actual objects from the past, Daily Life in a Covered Wagon explores what life was really like on the wagon train. Full-color illustrations, b&w photos.
