Product Description

Product Description

During the 1800s, more than 300,000 Americans migrated westward on the famous Oregon Trail. Winding 2,000 miles from Independence, Missouri, to Oregon City, Oregon, this remarkable route led brave pioneers across prairies, mountains, and deserts to the promising lands of the western frontier.

Today, more than 150 years after the first emigrants crossed the trail in wagon trains, you can relive their epic adventure with the help of author Julie Fanselow. Written for modern pioneers, this scenic touring guide includes information on: where to go; what to see; what to do along every section of the trail; trail history; present-day attractions; detailed maps and photographs.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic guide 13 Sep 1998
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
A trip to the Grand Tetons this year was greatly enhanced by this book, which I came upon with a search on Amazon.com. We used it to plan a car trip from Portland and we followed the Oregon Trail home from southern Wyoming. The maps were wonderful and the information accurate. We even golfed 9 holes at the Soda Springs municipal golf course to see the swales on the 8th hole, in addition to many other stops of intetest!

5.0 out of 5 stars A GREAT TRAVEL GUIDE 14 Nov 2000
By C Leach - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
My husband and I recently made a trip out west and used this book as our guide to follow the Oregon Trail. It was excellent! Her directions were right on the money and the book was easy to read and follow. She breaks the trip down to a day by day driving guide which was great so we knew how much time to plan. I would encourage visiting the 'out of way' options she offers. She also offers several driving options depending on your time allowance. A must have for an Oregon Trail trip!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic guide to the Oregon Trail 15 Aug 2005
By Cynthia Todd - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This was an absolutely wonderful book which helped my family to see every interesting bit on the Oregon Trail. Many sites were really off the beaten path and I'm sure rarely visited. It was clearly written, fairly assessing the different sites and had very clear directions. We are a family of 6 so the time allotted for travelling place to place was a little short, but all in all this book is a "Bible" for those who want to embark on this great trip.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for basic traveling of the trail 27 Jan 2011
By K. Hodges - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The book was a great read, however, she misses quite a few places on the trail. She makes up for it by giving us other attractions and things to do in the area. If you want a definitive guide to everything Oregon Trail, get The Oregon Trail Revisited 1997 Edition. That book directs you to every little tidbit of the trail.

5.0 out of 5 stars Phenomenal Book 1 Sep 2009
By M. Heiss - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
We used this one to plan our cross-country adventure through Nebraska and Wyoming, following the Oregon Trail. We had spent the early summer reading and learning about pioneer days, covered wagons, and native American cultures. We even read the Little House on the Prairie books aloud as a family. We were ready to hit the Trail.

Julie Fanselow did a tremendous job luring us to sites off-the-beaten-path. Her maps, written directions, and photographs were vital as we decided what to see, what to skip, and what to learn from.

We did about 800 miles of the Oregon Trail, and we enjoyed it tremendously. This book was our triptych.
