About the Book

Francis Parkman embarked on his first westward journey on April 28, 1846, from Saint Louis. The Oregon Trail chronicles his wilderness explorations, explains American westward migration, and honors the character of the United States.On April 28, Radnor-since lost-Parkman and his friend and relative Quincy A. Shaw traveled to the Rocky Mountains out of curiosity and enjoyment.They were followed by Shaw's sorrel horse, another mule, and Henry Chatillon's horse, a tough grey Wyandotte pony. Delorier, a Canadian, has all the qualities of the real Jean Baptiste.A loaded and capped revolver was on the mantelpiece, and John Milton's head was visible through the glass of a bookcase where the handle of a very mischievous knife sparkled.All the ladies present, many of them were slashing their legs with knives, howling, shrieking, and wailing. When fifty voices started to cheer and shout, they had just completely vanished.They were traveling through the Shawano nation, which was only partially civilized. Every field and meadow bore evidence of the soil's opulent fertility. The young wild apple trees were now draped densely with ruddy fruit, as opposed to when they were flushed with their fragrant blossoms.

About Author

Francis Parkman,Jr.

Francis Parkman Jr. was an American historian and gardener who lived from September 16, 1823, until November 8, 1893. Before his passing in 1893, he served as a trustee for the Boston Athenaeum from 1858. His writings are respected both as literary and historical materials. His father was a prominent Boston family member named the Reverend Francis Parkman Sr. (1788-1853). On the history of the American forest, he produced numerous books. He undertook an eight-month Grand Tour of Europe in 1843 when he was 20 years old. By the end of Parkman's lifetime, the histories of early America had grown popular due to the popularity of his writings. Parkman received a special dedication in Theodore Roosevelt's frontier history. On May 13, 1850, Parkman wed Catherine Scollay Bigelow; they had three kids. Early in life, a son passed away; shortly after, his wife passed away.
