Collected here for the first time are the surviving eyewitness accounts of the Bozeman's Trail's civilian emigrants: twenty-four diaries written during the journey and nine reminiscences prepared afterward. These accounts describe life on the West's last great emigrant trail, the shortcut from the Platte River Road to the Montana goldfields, from 1863 until 1866, when the route was closed by Red Cloud's War.
This gorgeous two-volume set is enhanced by illustrations, detailed maps, and helpful annotations.
