Sintesi dell'editore

Francis Parkman's journal - written more than 150 years ago, in 1846 - provides an eye-witness account of one of the grandest adventures in American history. At age 23, the Harvard-educated Bostonian traveled the Rocky Mountains, living among the Dakota Sioux. In his journal, he captured the color, spirit, and perspective of his era, as well as the exuberant confidence that was the mark of his time. Frank Muller's dramatic reading brings this captivating record to life.

"...with a rich and colorful narrative style, [Parkman] is, in the opinion of many, the greatest of American historians." (Frank N. Magill, Cyclopedia of World Authors)

Among the finest works of American literature

I have read this book often over a lifetime and it has never disappointed. But this reading was a revelation and brought an entirely new appreciation for Parkman’s genius. If you love language, adventure and America, avail yourself of this treasure.

Confusing geography

I am not sure how much this story was abridged, but it was hard to follow the geography of the trip. In the first place it was not really about a trip on the Oregon Trail, or at least only partly on the Oregon Trail. The writer started in Missouri went out through what is now Nebraska and then without a lot of explanation went by the Black Hills, Pikes Peak, Santa Fe New Mexico, and then surprisingly ended back up in Missouri. On horseback at the rate they were traveling that would’ve taken several months. But the anecdotes related were very interesting. All in all well worth listening to.

Very enjoyable

Great to listen to books written back in the day. Love the vivid picture of life at that time rather than some opinionated interpretation from these days.

Decent book

But I had trouble following it as I listened to most of it while working on a sewing project. I may be tempted to “read” again!

Great portrait

enjoyed very much; like reading a painting of early America.
Review requires too many words...

Great route for the western/mountain enthusiasts

At first I was not impressed with the book, that soon changed and I couldn’t put it down. Found myself listening to it every chance I got and would recommend it to anybody who likes westerns. To make it even better it was included with my membership.
