Historic Sites and Markers along the Mormon and Other Great Western Trails
About the Book
Historic Sites and Markers is an indispensable guide for travelers who wish to retrace the various frontier routes taken by the Mormons and other pioneers in their treks westward. Traversing fifteen states from New York to California, Stanley Kimball presents some of America's most famous trails--the Mormon, the Oregon-California, the Santa Fe, the Overland, and many others--and describes important points of interest, including forts, trail centers, and museums.
"An important contribution to the history of the West and perhaps the most comprehensive mile-by-mile guide to trail markers and historical sites ever prepared."
-- Brigham D. Madsen, author of The Shoshoni Frontier and the Bear River Massacre
