The Bozeman Trail

19.95

GOLD! The age-old motivator and one that saw tens of thousands of Americans fueling westward expansion to the Pacific coast. In 1863, John Bozeman pioneered a route that connected Montana gold fields to the Oregon Trail. As the Civil War closed, the flow of emigrants turned into a flood, angering the Native Americans over this intrusion into their nomadic lands. The Lakota chief Red Cloud declared war. Here are the stories of the years when the dangerous Bozeman Trail was in use. From it's first wagon train to the closing of the forts that protected the route, some of the most storied pioneers of the west played a part. The legendary Jim Bridger and the Fetterman Fight are just part of the adventure. Every memoir of the American West provides us with another view of the migration that changed the country forever.
