Stretching from Independence, Missouri to Oregon City in the Oregon territory the Oregon Trail was traveled by thousands of settlers looking for a better life in the promised land of Oregon, where the pigs were running about under the acorn trees, round and fat, already cooked, with knives and forks sticking in them. Beginning in the 1840s many people emigrated across the dangerous and beautiful country going to Oregon. This beautifully illustrated book gives you a taste of what that trip was like. Includes excerpts from diaries of emigrants, period illustrations, and photographs.

Crossing two thousand miles of prairies, river crossings, storms, hardship, Indians and mountains, the trip was not something to be taken lightly. It was the promise of a better life that dragged them through.
