The Oregon Trail
On April 28, 1848, two years after his graduation from Harvard, Francis Parkman left St. Louis for his first adventure in the American West. The Oregon Trail is the gripping account of renowned historian Francis Parkman's journey west across North America in 1846. After crossing the Allegheny Mountains by coach and continuing by boat and wagon to Westport, Missouri, he set out with three companions on a horseback journey during which he lived with the Dakota Sioux and passed through the Rockies. It was a journey that would ultimately take him over two thousand miles. This recording was named a 1996 "Best Audio for Memoir/Autobiography" by Publishers Weekly.
