About the Book

Amanda McKinnett was 121/2 years old when her family left Kentucky for the Oregon Territory. Her mother referred to the Oregon Trail as “that green dragon that is takin' people to Oregon.” By age 13 Amanda was orphaned. She and her dog Randy were the only survivors of a renegade indian attack. Twenty-two days later she was found by a supply train that had been delayed at Fort Leavenworth. While the Sheriff in Oregon City tried to find Amanda's only living relative, one Cleveland Waser, he placed Amanda in the care of Robert and Rose Harrigan. Amanda thrives and grows on the Harrigan farm during the historical time of Oregon Statehood.
