By Lorraine Heath. Wendy and Ilana take a pilgrimage to sort-of-historical post-Civil War Texas in this novel published in the 90’s, but first Ilana tells us about her apple adventure with a truck driver that may or may not be a witch. Also, this book is 100% inspired by the Oregon Trail computer game. Yes, they ford the river. Yes, there is a snake bite. Will they die of dysentery? Stay tuned to find out!
