"An absorbing true-to-life narrative packed with a fascinating variety of pioneers and adventurers, Mormons and outlaws, trappers and half-breeds. As related by a young American who set out to discover for himself the thrills and dangers of the Westward Trek, here are recreated the strange species of humanity found [150] years ago in that lawless, uncivilized region; where buffalo still ran wild and dangerous, and marauding bands of Indians made vigilance the price of life. Francis Parkman set out on his well-known journey in 1846, after graduation from Harvard. It was this eyewitness account of his trip, together with a 7-volume panorama on the history of the European struggle for domination over North America, that firmly established Parkman not only as a sociologist and historian, but as an exciting story-teller."" Introduction by A.B. Guthrie, Jr.; 12mo - over 6" - 7" tall
