Young, sharp-tongued Paula Masters, used to her cell phones, cherry lattes and designer jeans, suddenly finds herself thrust back in time to 1848 and the Oregon Trail. In modern life, she rebels against the curfews and restrictions of her day, seeing them as unfair hardships. But now in this alien world with its buffalo stampedes, wild Indians, and deadly pestilence, she is about to find out what real hardships are. To get home, she must set aside her rude girl persona and learn how to survive.
On the trek, Paula meets young Daniel Langdon, hunter and part-time scout, and an infatuation quickly becomes a great passion. She realizes this is the love of her life and to get home she will have to leave him behind.
In the tradition of Outlander, The Far Journey is a grand epic of love and tragedy, loyalty and betrayal, peril and survival. Throughout, Paula Masters is tested in body and soul and must discover the strength and toughness inside her.

Everything made this listening experience enjoyable. Great story, historically accurate, well presented by an engaging narrator. I was riveted from start to finish. A book for young and old. alike. I have to wonder if the author is a teacher because he has captured the teen of today very well. It was fascinating to see the chinks in her armor and how those were revealed more and more as her challenge goes on. We all think our lives are so hard at times but this novel brings it home that we have no idea what hard really is.
