Rinker Buck: The Oregon Trail

Wednesday, September 30, 2015 - 4:00pm

Journalist and writer RINKER BUCK decided one day that he would retrace the long and rugged route the pioneers took along the Oregon Trail to the Pacific. He decided to do it the traditional way: with a team of three mules pulling a  Schuttler wagon. His brother joined him on this journey. What followed was one of the great adventures and  thrilling road trips “seeing America slowly” an art he learned from his father. His account of this amazing voyage is THE OREGON TRAIL: A NEW AMERICAN JOURNEY.
