About this title


McLynn (literature, Strathclyde U., UK) has himself traveled the 3,000 miles of the California and Oregon Trails, and recounts stories of settlers who travelled them across the Great Plains of North America in the 19th century. Annotation (c) Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (

From the Inside Flap:

A fascinating account of the western migration of early American pioneers.

Seeking the promised land, the pioneers trekked 2,000 miles by covered wagon from the Missouri to the Pacific. They went into the unknown, braving dangers from hunger, thirst, disease, drowning and Indians. The year-by-year narrative builds to a climax with the dreadful tale of the Donner party marooned in the snow and reduced to cannibalism.
