Summary
"So rugged and mountainous is the first of a projected four-volume history, Overland West: the story of the Oregon and California Trails. This sweeping series describes how the 'Road across the Plains' transformed the American West and became an enduring part of its legacy. And by showing that overland emigration would not have been possible without the cooperation of Native peoples and tribes, it places American Indians at the center of trail history, not on its margins"--Book jacket
