Description

Fifteen-year-old Francis Tucket has been searching for his parents ever since Pawnees kidnapped him from their wagon train on the Oregon Trail. He owes his survival to a one-armed mountain man, Jason Grimes, who came to his rescue. Now Francis owes his life to the mountain man once again. Unfortunately, it's a debt he'll never be able to repay. Grimes is killed defending Francis and his young friends, Lottie and Billy, from a band of marauding robbers. As the three young people approach the end of their journey, they wonder if they can make it across the raging Columbia River. But a friendly young Indian offers Francis some good advice. Newbery Award-winning author Gary Paulsen skillfully juxtaposes exciting adventure with the dangers endured by pioneers on the Oregon Trail. This tale of heroism and courage is also a realistic look at the hardships endured by early settlers. John Randolf Jones' expert narration provides the perfect climax to this fifth and final book in the Francis Tucket saga.

Professional reviews

"This exciting tale concludes Paulsen's series about a youth, Francis Tucket, who has been kidnapped by Indians and is now seeking his family in 1849. Accompanied by two young companions, he travels to the Oregon country, enduring the elements and surviving marauders. Some of the action is violent and described graphically. Jones's deep voice is constant and steady, giving a wonderfully unhurried performance. His vocal characterizations are consistent. Young people will take to this story of perseverance, survival, and ultimate success. M.T.F. (c) AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine"
