The Perilous West


Seven Amazing Explorers and the Founding of the Oregon Trail


“Though each character examined in the book has their own exciting story of gripping adventure, Morris does a splendid job of weaving their interrelated involvement in a young Rocky Mountain fur trade into a well-researched, concise narrative, bringing long-awaited recognition to seven people who impacted the creation of the Oregon Trail.” – Jim Hardee, editor, The Rocky Mountain Fur Trade Journal, Museum of the Mountain Man, Pinedale, Wyoming.
