The Oregon Trail: Sketches Of Prairie And Rocky-Mountain Life

Francis Parkman

The Oregon Trail: Sketches Of Prairie And Rocky-Mountain Life is a non-fiction book written by Francis Parkman. The book is a detailed account of Parkman's journey along the Oregon Trail in 1846, where he traveled from Missouri to Oregon on a wagon train. The book is divided into two parts: the first part describes the journey from Missouri to the Rocky Mountains, while the second part covers the journey from the Rocky Mountains to Oregon. Throughout the book, Parkman provides vivid descriptions of the landscapes, people, and wildlife he encountered on his journey. He also shares his observations on the Native American tribes he encountered along the way, as well as his experiences with the various challenges and hardships faced by pioneers traveling along the Oregon Trail. The Oregon Trail: Sketches Of Prairie And Rocky-Mountain Life is considered a classic work of American literature, and is widely regarded as one of the best firsthand accounts of life on the Oregon Trail. The book provides a unique insight into the lives of the pioneers who made the perilous journey westward in search of a better life, and is a must-read for anyone interested in the history of the American West.This scarce antiquarian book is a facsimile reprint of the old original and may contain some imperfections such as library marks and notations.
