Review Quotes:
Praise for Ranger in Time:

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

Readers will love following Ranger on his thrilling adventure along the Oregon Trail. What a great way to learn about history! -- Lauren Tarshis, author of the I Survived series

Publisher Marketing:
