Alone in the Wild
First sentence: It's 1849, and you and your family are settlers on the journey of a lifetime on the Oregon Trail. So far, the trip has been filled with challenges: runaway oxen, bandits, illness, dangerous wildlife, broken wagon parts, and more. You're lucky you've all made it to South Pass, Wyoming--your halfway point.
Premise/plot: This is a stand alone title in the Oregon Trail Choose Your Own Adventure series by Jesse Wiley. In this one, the reader finds himself/herself ALONE after the fording of a river goes wrong. There are twenty possible endings but only one where you are a) alive and b) reunited with parents. (Not to be confused with the ending where you're a) barely alive and b) reunited with your parents but they're likely to die soon too.) How wisely will you choose?
My thoughts: I loved reading all four books last year in the series. I would recommend all the books. I enjoyed this stand-alone adventure. I wouldn't mind having even MORE stand-alone adventures. There are still plenty of scenarios left unexplored at this point.
