    #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER &; #1 Indie Next Pick &; Winner of the PEN New England Award

    &;Enchanting&;A book filled with so much love&;Long before Oregon, Rinker Buck has convinced us that the best way to see America is from the seat of a covered wagon.&; &;The Wall Street Journal

    &;Amazing&;A real nonfiction thriller.&; &;Ian Frazier, The New York Review of Books

    &;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).
