OREGON TRAIL
by Rinker Buck
An epic account of traveling the length of the Oregon Trail the old-fashioned way--in a covered wagon; an audacious journey that hasn't been attempted in a century. Traveling from St. Joseph, Missouri, to Baker City, Oregon, over the course of four months, the author is accompanied by three cantankerous mules, his boisterous brother, Nick, and an "incurably filthy" Jack Russell terrier named Olive Oyl. "The Oregon Trail" is much more than an epic adventure. It is also a lively and essential work of history that shatters the comforting myths about the trail years passed down by generations of Americans.
