Crew, Linda. Heart for Any Fate: Westward to Oregon, 1845. Portland: Oregon Historical Society Press : Distributed by the University of Washington Press, c2005
Reviewed by Donna Hoeksema
Heart for Any Fate gives a more balanced view of all of the people involved in an early move from Missouri to Oregon. It is written from the perspective of a young 17 year old traveling with her extended family. It is in the historical fiction category with different insights into the Indians, buffaloes, soldiers, and responsibility. It was a quick read (since I could do it during a busy vacation out to Colorado --- traveling some of the same paths mentioned in the book).
