Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungThe Great Platte River Road through Nebraska and Wyoming was the grand corridor of America's westward expansion. This work goes far beyond geography and Indian encounters in revealing cultural aspects of the great migration: food, dress, equipment, organization, camping, sex ratios, morals, religion, crime, disease, death, and burial customs.
PortraitMerrill J. Mattes based his monumental work on an examination of more than seven hundred overland journals. He has included a chronology, original maps, contemporary sketches, modern photographs, and a comprehensive bibliography.
