The Oregon Trail
- A New American Journey
- By: Rinker Buck
- Narrated by: Rinker Buck
- Length: 16 hrs and 42 mins
In the best-selling tradition of Bill Bryson and Tony Horwitz, Rinker Buck's The Oregon Trail is a major work of participatory history: an epic account of traveling the entire 2,000-mile length of the Oregon Trail the old-fashioned way, in a covered wagon with a team of mules - which hasn't been done in a century - that also tells the rich history of the trail, the people who made the migration, and its significance to the country.
An author does not a good narrator make

Great Book But....
Would you try another book from Rinker Buck and/or Rinker Buck?
No. I found this to be a great book however out of the blue 2/3 of the way through the author out the blue started into a political rant condemning conservationism. This may have been appropriate had it been advertised as political indoctrination. It's a shame that I spent my hard earned money on a book I was unable to finish.
