    Educational! Entertaining! Exciting!

    Your Story Hour proudly presents this second set of exciting, dramatized stories in our new Exciting Events series.

    Follow the mid 1800's adventures of the Allen Family (parents Joshua and Sarah, big brother Abel, sisters Marijane and Abby, little sister Faith, and Grandpa Allen) as they join a wagon train headed west on the epic Oregon Trail. Traveling over 2,000 miles in their oxen-driven "Prairie Schooners" (smaller, sturdy covered wagons) through hazardous river crossings, treacherous weather, mountain passes, tragedy, disease, and devastating dust storms, the Allens symbolize the determination and trials of a typical family who braved the Oregon trek. Life lessons and historical details are woven into the narrative of everyday events on the trail in this five-part adventure.

    Also featured is the heroic story of courageous 1960s civil rights activist Fannie Lou Hamer, who through non-violence and determination, fought racial segregation while helping African Americans register to vote. Character-building listening for the whole family!
