Antoine of Oregon by James Otis
This book follows the story Antoine, son of a French trader who first traveled over the Oregon trail with his father. After his father dies he is hired as a young guide for a group of settlers who seek to cross the Rockies in covered wagons. Even at a young age, he has more experience in unsettled regions than most of other travelers, and his conflicts with older members of the party provide considerable drama on the journey.
