Summary
Discover the crucial role wagon trains played in America's western expansion. This book explores the history, routes, landmarks, and legacy of the famous Oregon, California, Mormon, and Santa Fe Trails. Also revealed are the stories of those who packed all their wordly possessions in covered wagons, traveled for months along the mountains, deserts, and plains of western trails, and did their part to extend the notion of an American frontier.
