Author Talk: The Oregon Trail: A New American Journey

July 13, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Award-winning journalist Rinker Buck, the author of the acclaimed memoirs Flight of Passage and First Job, will read from and sign his new book The Oregon Trail: A New American Journey ($28.00 Simon & Schuster), his epic account of journeying from St. Joseph, Missouri, to Baker City, Oregon, over the course of four months, accompanied by three cantankerous mules, his boisterous brother, Nick, and an “incurably filthy” Jack Russell terrier named Olive Oyl. In this tale of  traveling the length of the Oregon Trail the old-fashioned way – in a covered wagon with a team of mules, an audacious journey that hasn’t been attempted in a century – Buck also tells the rich history of the trail, the people who made the migration, and its significance to the country.
