      • premium: False
      • source: Henry Steel Commager, historian
      • content: "The Oregon Trail appeared in 1849, and with its publication Parkman was launched upon his career as a storyteller without peer in American letters...It is the picturesqueness, the racy vigor, the poetic eloquence, the youthful excitement, that give The Oregon Trail its enduring appeal, recreating for us, as perhaps does no other book in our literature, the wonder and beauty of life in a new world that is now old and but a memory."
      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: Francis Parkman's eyewitness account of his 1846 trek across the early West established him as an important historian and chronicler of soon-lost societies and traditions. Frank Muller's narration of this well-crafted abridgment is masterful. Parkman wrote with a fine sense of color and landscape. Muller brilliantly enhances these descriptions, adding his rich, expressive voice to Parkman's observations. Muller's cadence, sense of timing and emphasis are impeccable, and the narrative flows with the fascination of a novel. The text is a primary resource for American history studies, and the audio format makes a valuable contribution. R.F.W. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
