“Absorbing…Winning…The many layers in The Oregon Trail are linked by Mr. Buck’s voice, which is alert and unpretentious in a manner that put me in mind of Bill Bryson’s comic tone in A Walk in the Woods .” —Dwight Garner, The New York Times

A major bestseller that has been hailed as a “quintessential American story” ( Christian Science Monitor ), Rinker Buck’s The Oregon Trail is an epic account of traveling the 2,000-mile length of the Oregon Trail the old-fashioned way—in a covered wagon with a team of mules—that has captivated readers, critics, and booksellers from coast to coast. Simultaneously a majestic journey across the West, a significant work of history, and a moving personal saga, Buck’s chronicle is a “laugh-out-loud masterpiece” ( Willamette Week ) that “so ensnares the emotions it becomes a tear-jerker at its close” ( Star Tribune, Minneapolis) and “will leave you daydreaming and hungry to see this land” ( The Boston Globe ).
