The Oregon Trail: A New American Journey by Rinker Buck
Reviewed by: Hope Fox, KPL Patron
Rating: 5 stars
Buck's epic account of traveling the length of the Oregon Trail the old-fashioned way-- in a covered wagon with a team of mules, an audacious journey that hasn't been attempted in a century-- tells the rich history of the trail, the people who made the migration, and its significance to the country.
"The author and his brother undertake a 4 month journey traveling by mule and wagon from Missouri to Oregon trying to recreate the Oregon Trail experience. The book chronicles their experiences, misadventures, and people they met along the way. A Very good read."
