Description

Book by Franzwa, Gregory . I used this book as a guide on a recent trip following the Oregon Trail. It was absolutely the best guide!

Book by Franzwa, Gregory . It was absolutely the best guide! I learned so much history from this book. I used this along with Franzwa's Oregon Trail book of maps to make my way from Missouri to Oregon City.

This book is a companion to Franzwa's, book "The Oregon Trail Revisited". I am almost certain the author travelled every mile noted in this books. I used both books in conjunction with local county maps and between the three resources, I have had no problem finding the trail landmarks I sought. In many areas here in Wyoming the Association has plainly marked the old route

The Oregon Trail is a 2,170-mile (3,490 km) historic East–West, large-wheeled wagon route and emigrant trail in the United States that connected the Missouri River to valleys in Oregon. The eastern part of the Oregon Trail spanned part of the future. The eastern part of the Oregon Trail spanned part of the future state of Kansas, and nearly all of what are now the states of Nebraska and Wyoming. The western half of the trail spanned most of the future states of Idaho and Oregon.

Refreshing to experience with the depth of the author. Can't remember who referred me to the book...but it's a winner...especially if you plan to try and find all the bits & pieces.

I have lived near the Oregon, California and Mormon trails in Wyoming for most of my adult life. South Pass, Parting of the Ways, the Sublette and Lander cut-offs are an easy one to two hour drive. However, until I bought and read this book, I was missing many of the details about the trails that make the story of the migration so interesting. The book is a superlative guide to the physical trail and important landmarks and how to find them. The author goes a giant step beyond the trail guide aspect in telling personal stories of the pioneers pertinent to that geographical area of the trail. The companion book of his maps are useful and worth the price. I found the county maps of the specific section I was exploring to be more detailed. Both volumes are worthwhile purchases. The author has passed away and it is entirely possible there may be no more reprints of these books.

This is the book I have spent several years looking for. For anyone trying to follow the Oregon Trail, this book tells you how to get to each site. We had floundered around with other books and maps and brochures - but this is the comprehensive book for the whole trail. It provides detailed directions to each site along the trail, telling where the public and private lands are, as well as providing history. An amazing book for the trail searcher.

I purchased and read Pacific Destiny by Dale L Walker years ago. I keep the classics on the American West and even reread them later. Reading Down the Great Beyond this year prompted me to dig out and rearead it. I find wonderful suggestions in the backs of books I enjoyed, other books suggested by the author. This is such a suggestion and I loved it. It is going into the permanent library. I have lived in the west all my life and have traveled over and by much of the trail in eastern Oregon and Wyoming.

This is just a classic book about the trail and how it exists in the current day. Lots of information!
