Book Overview

Meet Ranger He's a time-traveling golden retriever who has a nose for trouble . . . and always saves the day

Ranger has been trained as a search-and-rescue dog, but can't officially pass the test because he's always getting distracted by squirrels during exercises. One day, he finds a mysterious first aid kit in the garden and is transported to the year 1850, where he meets a young boy named Sam Abbott. Sam's family is migrating west on the Oregon Trail, and soon after Ranger arrives he helps the boy save his little sister. Ranger thinks his job is done, but the Oregon Trail can be dangerous, and the Abbotts need Ranger's help more than they realize

Ranger is a golden retriever who failed search and rescue training. He loves his family but one day he discovers a box and is transported back in time. In the first part of the series, Ranger ends up on the Oregon Trail. As he helps a new family and their friends survive a wagon train ride, his search and rescue training becomes second nature. Kate Messner's book has historical insight and she doesn' tgloss over the realities of life on a wagon train. Not everyone will survive the journey, but most will thanks to Ranger to the Rescue! Ranger will time travel to many exciting periods in time to try to get home to his family. Adults will enjoy this book and appreciate it. I can't wait to read about Ranger's adventures.
   Perfect for elementary readers
I thought this was a cute story that would be great for kids to read on their own, but who wouldn't be intimidated by crowded pages or tiny fonts? The text spacing was great, the pictures were good, and the storyline was engaging, informative and fast- paced to help pull the kids in as readers. It's a smart storyline. Who doesn't love a time- traveling Golden retriever? We will definitely purchase more of this series.
   Grandma enjoyed this story
I read it with my grandson. The story about a family traveling the Oregon Trail is full of adventure and real challenges met by the brave families who braved this trail in the 1800s, which is why it is a fiction. Our favorite part of the book was the crossing of a dangerous river and the actions of one special dog.
   Even old guys like it
I'm 71 years old and not in the age group that the book was written for, but I still enjoyed it. I used to like to read books like this when I was a kid. I plan to read more of Ms. Messner's books since it's a fun read for any age. A story about battles, ghosts, and two very special dogs.
   A time traveling, people saving golden retriever? Yes, please!
What child could ask for more from a dog that travels through time and saves people? Messner has written several books that I recommend to my library patrons. This is a light, easy read for grades 3-6 and will leave them feeling satisfied and likely to reach for more books in the series, which does not have to be read in order. Social studies teachers will appreciate the historical backdrop and accurate depiction of the time period featured and readers will be unaware of all that they are learning while following golden retriever Ranger into various places and times saving the day The only reason for the 4 star review was due to the fairly predictable pace in the book, but many young readers will appreciate the fact that the storyline does not twist and turn its way to a conclusion.
Boring. Too much like a history text. Not smart or witty, like Gooney Bird. My granddaughter begged me to continue to read.
