The Oregon Trail is the Oregon Trail

Loosely or not so loosely based on the iconic computer game The Oregon Trail, The Oregon Trail is the Oregon Trail chronicles the journey of a family on their way out West. Along the way, they fight dysentery, a racist Mel Gibson, syphilis, and consumption while learning that letting go is sometimes easier than starting over. Read the book, play the game, and never welcome the small pox welcome wagon. We have done bad things, and we will pay for them.
