By David Dary
Experience life on the Santa Fe Trail through the words of the people who lived, traded, and traveled on it
using firsthand accounts from Native Americans, mountain men, traders, trappers, freighters, surveyors, and soldiers, historian David Dary presents a vivid recreation of life on the Santa Fe Trail. From 1610 to the 1860s this trail-which ran from Missouri and Kansas to New Mexico-was a lifeline to and from the Southwest. Drawing from an expansive array of primary sources, Dary introduces readers to the people who laid down the trail and opened commerce with Spanish America. From the early years of Spanish control to the establishment of towns to the advent of the railroads that changed life forever, Dary presents a detailed, dramatic account of an exciting period in American history.
