Honestly I forced myself about 3/4 of the way through and it has a little history a lot of presronal and a bunch of opinions. it got to a religion view and I was disgusted and quit reading and I do not just quit a book but this one I did ( )

Brothers depart in a covered wagon on the trail in modern times, navigating around floods, rocks, mountains, rivers, highways, and towns. This book tells if the difficult time the pioneers had traveling the trail and makes social commentary on issues today. We learn about mules and their intelligence and strength. We see how isolation impacted the brothers. Really worthwhile book. ( )

Rinker Buck and his brother, Nick, set out on a journey to traverse the Oregon Trail the "old way": in a covered wagon drawn by a team of (big-personality) mules. Starting in Missouri, they travel through Kansas, Nebraska, Wyoming, and Idaho before finally arriving at their destination in Oregon. Along the way, the author very liberally sprinkles in information on the history of the trail and the pioneers who traveled on it.

I definitely learned a lot about the trail through this book, and I appreciated the descriptions of the landscapes and mule team and various obstacles that the two had to overcome. I will say, though, that I was a little underwhelmed by the comparisons to Bill Bryson's works. To be totally honest, the book wasn't nearly as funny as I was expecting based on that, and the history sections sometimes dragged a bit. I also wasn't extremely excited by the sometimes extremely frank ways in which the author shared his opinions on topics like religion and politics--totally independent of whatever my own thoughts on these topics might be, I felt that sometimes his demeanor was a bit off-putting. Overall, though, it was a quite interesting look at the Oregon Trail period in American history as well as a tale of the brothers' own trip along the trail. ( )

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. Simultaneously a majestic journey across the West, a significant work of history, and a moving personal saga. ( )

When I strike the open plains, something happens. I'm home. I breathe differently. That love of great spaces, or rolling open country like the sea, it's the grand passion of my life.

This book is for my brother, Nicholas McMahon Buck, who got us there with rare gumption and skill. Among New England horsemen, he has long been known as one of the great team drivers of his generation and he affirmed this - and more - crossing the Oregon Trail.

I had known long before I rode a covered wagon to Oregon that naivete was the mother of adventure.
