Cathy Long, an Oregon native and devoted wife, mother, and grandmother, has completed her new book “A Vacation through Time on the Oregon Trail”: a riveting tale that explores how a woman on vacation finds herself transported to the 1800's and traveling the Oregon Trail.    

According to Long, “(I) was born in Toledo, Oregon, and grew up on the Oregon Coast. After graduating high school, (I) attended Chemeketa Community College in Salem, Oregon, for the Dental Assistant Program. (I) worked a long and rewarding career of thirty-five years in the dental field, which (I) left to pursue other adventures with (my) husband. These new adventures led to finding (myself) working for the Lincoln County History Center. (I) had the enjoyment of giving tours through the log cabin and the 1895 Queen Anne Victorian House Museum. Here (I) was encouraged to read all the local and Oregon history (I) could get (my) hands on. Here is where (I) came across the history of the house (I) grew up in and discovered it was built between 1912 and 1920 as a vacation cottage. Sparked by the history of Oregon, (I) set out for vacation in Baker City, Oregon, to visit the local Oregon Trail Interpretive Center. (I) saw wagons, stood on the Oregon Trail, in the ruts, and right away this piqued (my) interest, and (I) started writing the story."

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Cathy Long's exciting work begins with the drive east on Interstate Highway 84 to Baker City, Oregon, to visit the Oregon Trail Interpretive Center by Caitlin and her husband, Sam.

After spending time walking through the center, Caitlin got a headache and told Sam that she was going outside. As she came out, she noticed an eerie darkness in the sky. All of a sudden, her slight headache felt like a knife was shoved in her head. She sat down on the bench and leaned back against the wagon and closed her eyes.

She could almost hear the noise of people talking, a horse neighing, cows mooing, the campfire popping and crackling. She heard her husband’s voice. “Caitlin . . . Kate! Kate!” As she opened her eyes, there stood her husband—no, this was not her husband. She went to stand up to walk toward him. She felt encumbered. She looked down at her legs, and she was wearing a long blue dress with an apron. She looked back at him, and everything went black.
