A Hack Goes West

On Horseback along the Oregon Trail

By Dylan Winter

150 years later, inspired by the struggles of the early pioneers and a lifetime of western films, Dylan Winter set out with his unlikely team of horses to recreate the trip. Over two thousand miles of inhospitable terrain and no help from modern technology. In his honest and witty record of the trip, Dylan recounts the obstacles he overcame, problems he encountered and friends he made. On his travels he experienced ghost towns, tractor graveyards and telepathic grader drivers, which, combined with the bullfrog concertos, give the reader an impression of the America that a tourist would never see.
