I enjoy collecting and learning from books and this is another beautiful work showcasing the rich heritage of the states within America.
Kaye Balchin
Personal tales are "real" history and this is good for quilt lovers and those who would like to have lived in the 1800"s.

Anyone who is interested in pioneer history will love the book, "Quilts of the Oregon Trail", by Mary Bywater Cross. There is far more than quilt history in this book. The author has integrated the quilts into a broad study of the lives of the women who owned or made them.

The information presented with each quilt is fascinating. We learn about the women's lives, their families, and the trials and tribulations involved in the trip west as well as their experiences after arrival. As each quilt maker comes to life through these stories we learn details about her quilt including how and where it was made and what it might have meant to her.

The photos of the quilts and the people are a joy to view. They make these women's lives all the more real. As a quilter and quilt history enthusiast this book is a favorite of mine.

Great book for whom is interested in quilts, women who made them and history. No patternbook!!!! 56 quilts are shown in full color with photos of the makers.The book presents quilts as documents of history in order to learn about the lives of the women who made the migration.

Yet another wonderful book for my collection. The Quilts of the Oregon Trail share the times and lives of the women of this era, as someone who knows little of American History this is an interesting book sharing the wonderful workmanship of the time. I enjoy collecting and learning from books and this is another beautiful work showcasing the rich heritage of the states within America.Thank You.

This is a lovely book. Lots of pictures and information on each maker. I found myself flipping back and forth through all the quilts. Thoroughly enjoyable read.
