The Oregon Trail: A New American Journey
At once a majestic journey across the West, a significant work of history, and a moving personal saga, The Oregon Trail draws readers into the journey of a lifetime. Learn more
Well-researched and -written, with a pretty comprehensive index as well as reams of endnotes that not only give multiple sources for most subjects but also give plenty of extra context and suggestions for further reading. The first chapter alone, describing the various steam-era shopcrafts and how they did their work, is worth the price of admission.
