A #1 Indie Next PickSpanning two thousand miles through six states from Missouri to the Pacific, the Oregon Trail is the route that made America. In the fifteen years before the Civil War, 400,000 pioneers used it to emigrate west. Today, the Oregon Trail is all but forgotten. No stranger to grand adventures, Rinker Buck travels its length the old-fashioned way in a wildly ambitious work of participatory history with a heart as big as the country it crosses.
