OREGON TRAIL by Rinker Buck Will Make You Want to Get a Covered Wagon

Rinker Buck, the fabulous author of OREGON TRAIL.

Rinker Buck, the fabulous author of OREGON TRAIL.

Ever wanted to not just read about a chapter in history but actually go out there and live it?

Rinker Buck and his brother Nicholas did exactly that!  When Rinker chanced upon the information that the Oregon Trail still exists in most places along its famous route beginning in Missouri, an idea was born.  Rinker decided he’d get a covered wagon, some mules to pull it, recreating the transportation methods circa 1840 – and go west!

The greatest migration of people ever happened between in the mid-1840’s and about 1900 as legions of them relocated across the plains along the Oregon Trail.

This book is fun, enjoyable, filled with riveting backstories…and makes me wish the brothers Buck had taken me with them!  Here they are in their covered wagon.

BRAVO for writing this, Rinker Buck!  If you do this again, have you got room for one more?
