0 Reviews
Now you can travel back in time a century and a half along this famous Trail. No one else has ever told so completely and so well the full, exciting story of this historic route, from the time of the Coronado to the coming of the railroad. Enjoy it as armchair reading and live again the great days of the open plains--yet this edition is now so accurate it will satisfy the careful scholar. J. Frank Dobie called this book the "best of this century on the subject; swift reading."
