9781558597822: Seven Trails West

This volume tells many stories in one: the epic tale of men and women (some of them famous trailbreakers, some little known); the lures that attracted these pragmatic dreamers to the West; and the ordeals and disappointments they overcame along the way. Illustrated with archival photographs, paintings, maps and documents, the book offers the general reader an overview of the western trail network that bound an immature nation together and provided an armature for later development.

From the Publisher:

A handsome exploration of the major routes that linked the country to the Far West; the trail blazed by Lewis and Clark, the Santa Fe Trail, the Oregon-California Trail, the Mormon Trail, the Pony Express, the Transcontinental Telegraph, and the Transcontinental Railroad.

From the Back Cover:

The first book of its kind, Seven Trails West explores the major routes that linked the eastern United States to the Far West: the trail blazed by the Lewis and Clark Expedition, the Santa Fe Trail, the Oregon-California Trail, the Mormon Trail, the Pony Express, the Transcontinental Telegraph, and the Transcontinental Railroad. Abundantly illustrated with a far-ranging selection of archival photographs, paintings, and documents, this handsome volume also features clear maps of each of the trails and striking color photographs of the challenging terrain traversed by the emigrants.
