Editorial Reviews

Praise for Ranger in Time: Rescue on the Oregon Trail"This excellent story contains historical details, full-page illustrations, and enough action to keep even reluctant readers engaged." -- School Library Journal"The third-person narration expertly balances Ranger's thoughts between the appropriately doglike (squirrels! bacon!) and the heroic (Ranger's drive to find and protect)." -- Kirkus Reviews"McMorris's richly rendered illustrations heighten the plot's many moments of danger and drama, and Messner incorporates a wealth of historical details into her rousing adventure story." -- Publishers Weekly
