&;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.
