Editorial Reviews

“It is the picturesqueness, the racy vigor, the poetic eloquence, the youthful excitement, that give The Oregon Trail its enduring appeal, recreating for us, as perhaps does no other book in our literature, the wonder and beauty of life in a new world that is now old and but a memory.” Henry Steel Commanger, historian
“A laudable interpretation by veteran narrator Frank Muller…Highly recommended.” Library Journal
