Summary
Discover how between 1810 and 1870 more than 300,000 people traveled west to Oregon Country along trails that were once footpaths used by American Indians. Learn what it was like to join one of the wagon trains leaving Missouri. See and how people on the trail traded with the American Indians. Find out how the U.S. government forced the American Indians to live on reservations. This book describes in detail the lives of ordinary people in the United States of America who headed west to find new homes and lives but also brought misery to American Indians. Each book in the series uses reconstruction illustrations and photographs along with clear text and fact boxes to bring the story of our nation to life.
