About the Book

American Trails Revisited follows in the proverbial footsteps of the many explorers and pioneers who traveled across the American West. Based on the works of the Federal Writers Project in the 1940's, this book organizes, updates, and enhances the original material to provide an easy-to-follow historical travel guide to the Western United States. Along with the history of the people and places you will find along the way, this book also includes information for local, state, and national parks. A portion of the proceeds from this book will be used to support local historical organizations, so that the history that you rediscover in your travels will remain for those who follow in your footsteps.
