I ended up getting this books over the weekend. I have previously read the Half-Stitched quilt books in the series and thought they were ok. The Oregon Trail book sounds interesting in that the author bought mules and a covered wagon and retraced the Trail. I only know a few things about Benjamin Franklin, and thought this book looked interesting. In regards to Jo's Boys I need to read the previous books but you don't hear about this and Little Men as much as Little Women. I find sometimes that famous authors have other books that are really good but for some reason they don't get the attention, hopefully when I get to read these that will be the case. Have you read any of these books?
