Fort Laramie began as Fort William in 1834, when fur trapper William Sublette built it on the banks of the Laramie River in Wyoming. Readers will be thrilled to learn that the Oregon, Mormon, and California Trails passed the fort during the period of our nation's westward expansion. In 1849, the U.S. Army bought the fort and renamed it Fort Laramie. The life of a soldier will come alive in this engrossing story of the national historic site that was also once a Pony Express station.
