Overview

The Oregon Trail by Francis Parkman

The Oregon Trail offers a critical view of the Conestoga wagon generation. The result of the notes Parkman took along the newly-developed roads to the West, the book put an end to the sentimentalized portrait of pioneer travel. Altering the course of American history and shaping early views of Native Americans, it denounces, in its descriptions of the Oglala tribe he visited, the stereotype of the Noble Savage.
