An enormously entertaining classic, The Way West brings to life the adventure of the western passage
and the pioneer spirit. The sequel to The
Big Sky, this celebrated novel charts a frontiersman’s return to the
untamed American West in 1846. Dick Summers, as pilot of a wagon train, guides
a group of settlers on the difficult journey from Missouri to Oregon.
In sensitive but unsentimental prose, Guthrie illuminates
the harsh trials and resounding triumphs of pioneer life. With The Way West, he pays homage to the grandeur
of the western wilderness, its stark and beautiful scenery, and its
extraordinary people. Download and start listening now!
