Sintesi dell'editore

This is the classic account of Francis Parkman’s rugged trip over the eastern part of the Oregon Trail with his cousin Quincy Adams Shaw in the spring and summer of 1846. They left St. Louis by steamboat and traveled on horseback, in company with guides and occasionally other travelers. They encountered storms and buffalo hunts, meeting Indians, soldiers, sportsmen, and emigrants.

The Oregon Trail is an eyewitness account of the Mormons and outlaws, trappers and Indians, pioneers and adventurers who struggled to conquer the frontier.

The Oregon Trail appeared in 1849, and with its publication Parkman was launched upon his career as a storyteller without peer in American letters.… It is the picturesqueness, the racy vigor, the poetic eloquence, the youthful excitement, that give  The Oregon Trail its enduring appeal, recreating for us, as perhaps does no other book in our literature, the wonder and beauty of life in a new world that is now old and but a memory.” (Henry Steel Commager, historian)
“This book, in brief, is excellent and has the true wild game flavor.” (Herman Melville)
“This timeless account of Parkman’s travels and travails…remains a colorful classic.” ( Library Journal)

Great story, reader keeps swallowing words

In retrospect I would buy the book. the reader is difficult to understand making for a rather unenjoyable experience. he has a tendency to swallow key words, and I found myself repeatedly rewinding to decipher his speach.

Only halfway along the Oregon Trail

Parkman didn’t go all the way to Oregon, only into Wyoming before turning south along the Rockies and then back to Westport. Still, it’s an interesting picture of those times. Narration was very stilted.
