    I predict that the mane charicter is a girl named Jeresa Angelino Viscardi. I think she will travil by train and she will meat the conductor Mr. Anderson. I think the train Jeresa and her family are on will brake down or something will happen to it. Jeresa and her family may join a wagon train, billed there own wagon or stay where there train broke down. They maybe rode a train to Montana where the Orgeon Trail starts.

  19. Jackson DeShaw says:

    I think that Joshua likes being on the Oregon trail. Also, he is very courageous when dangers come. Some of those dangers are native Americans or desese

  20. Marina Sullivan says:

    I predicted that Teresa Angelina Viscardi is the main character and she is on a train. I think the train is going to break down and she is going to meet a wagon train. If she does, the wagon train will help her family build a covered wagon. Or the train will take an unexpected turn, and go off the train tracks. Then Teresa and her family will make a covered wagon and go toward Oregon alone. Or they might join another wagon train. On the back of the book it says: “…and the Idaho Territory didn’t seem far away…” So I think they are heading toward Idaho. Also Teresa was getting tought on the train. So maybe she is a young girl.

  21. Jacklyn Craven says:

    I think the story will take place in the wilderness. I think it will be different than my life setting because they are in wildernes and we aren’t. I think the main character will be the kid Joshua.

  23. Cooper Watkins says:

    I think lots of native Americans will help the Todd family and someone
    Will die in the winter on the mountains. The native Americans mite start to feel different about the Todd family and start to hate them. I think when the Todd family passes through the mountains someone will die because of the wether. I think the Todd familys wagon train will get lost in a blizzard on there way to Oregon. I think many pioneers will die of diseses and will have to make many hard decision.

  24. Katherine DeVall says:

    I predict that they have a small wagon train. And I predict that the boy is curious. I think a challenges they might face is grizzly bears, Indians and staying on the trail. And most importantly, the main character Jedediah Barstow. I wonder how many siblings he has.how I think his family is different from mine is there family has boy things and girl things that are different from each other also they have a lot of layers, and there smile are very strat.

  25. Emily Brown says:

    I think maybe Hattie Campbell’s mom (or dad) will die in the middle or the end of the book. I think that the book takes place in the early 1800s or so. If hattie Campbell is in the wagon train, I think that one wagon train will break or the family in the wagon will die of disease.
