The Oregon Trail

Francis Parkman
Introduced by Frank McLynn

The book of Parkman's youth and one of the first great chronicles of the American West, The Oregon Trail remains the most popular of all his works.

In the summer of 1846, a privileged young Bostonian, Francis Parkman, embarked on a journey that took him thousands of miles beyond the protection of the US cavalry. His route led west along the pioneer trail towards the Rocky Mountains, which thousands of men, women and children would travel to seek their fortunes in the new frontier territories across the Great Plains.
