Product Description

Prepare yourself for a trip westward through time - back to 1845 and the days of the pioneers. The book is rich with practical information about how to go and what to bring, but it is even richer in describing what you'll see along the way and when you get there. The book was an important reason why many pioneers chose California as a destination. Softcover, 152 pages. An Applewood Book.

Publisher's Description

A popular guidebook during the western expansion and a valuable collectible today, The Emigrantsi Guide was first published in 1845. While the book introduced those heading west to the beauty and habitable nature of the Pacific coast, it had considerable shortcomings - it was the guide used by the ill-fated Donner Party. As a corrective, Randolph Marcy published a more accurate guide, The Prairie Traveler (also available from Applewood Books).
