The Oregon Trail The Oregon Trail
by Francis Parkman, E.N. Feltskog (Editor)
For young adult readers
Francis Parkman learns firsthand from the Indians--and not from the remnants of eastern tribes, what Plains Indians are like from his personal journey on the Oregon Trail. It was his own fortitude and perseveranceperseverance under the most grievous physical afflictionsthat made it possible for Parkman to see as much of the West as he did, to experience at first hand the life of the explorer and the trapper and hunter, and even of the Indian. And it was his arduous preparation, his intellectual curiosity, his talent for observation, his enthusiasm, his gift for dramatic narrative, that enabled him to reconstruct from his fragmentary Journals what he had seen and to convey it with such youthful exuberance to generations of readers.

Adventures of the First Settlers on the Oregon or Columbia River: 1810-1813 Adventures of the First Settlers on the Oregon or Columbia River: 1810-1813
by Alexander Ross
 
Four years after Lewis and Clark stimulated American interest in the far western reaches of the continent, John Jacob Astor, a New York businessman, dispatched an overland expedition to establish a fur-trading post on the Columbia River. A second group traveled by sea aboard the Tonquin, amoung them Alexander Ross, a clerk in Astor's Pacific Fur Company. Adventures of the First Settlers is a vivid account of the expedition and its struggles to establish a successful trading venture. Ross details the Tonquin's dangerous voyage and documents the Astorians' painstaking stuggles to clear the land and build a new trading post. Their settlement, Astoria, became the first American outpost on the Pacific Slope.
