The Old Trails West "is the story of the great legendary routes that bound a wild land into a nation. The Oregon Trail, El Camino Real, the Butterfield Overland Mail, the Santa Fe Trail--these are names that conjure up tales of the past. This book recounts the true stories behind the trails: what impelled their exploration, determined their paths, how they contributed to the settling of the West, and ... the adventures ... of the brave men who made them." You will get to know "the Spanish conquistadores, explore Arizona with Father Kino--'the Padre on Horseback'--search for the Seven Gold Cities of Cíbola, follow the traplines of Jim Bridger and the mountain men, invade Spanish California with General Stephen Watts Kearny and the Army of the West. You will cross hostile Indian country with the Mormon Battalion, surmount snow-filled mountain passes and scorching deserts to dig for gold with the Forty-Niners, carry the mail with the Pony Express, and discover the depth of Indian loyalty with Lewis and Clark."

Kit Carson and the wild frontier by Ralph Moody( Book )

8 editions published between 1955 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 678 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As a boy Kit Carson was such a backward little runt that his stepfather was almost ashamed of him. The idea of making a rugged frontiersman out of the shy, bandy-legged boy seemed laughable. But Kit had different ideas, and at sixteen he joined a wagon train and was heading over the Santa Fe Trail for Taos, the little Mexican settlement that had become headquarters fro the mountain men. From then on, Kit was always on the move--trapping beaver, fighting Indian raiders, pushing into new territory of the Western frontier. At twenty he was as tough as leather. He could ride any wild horse on the prairies and could shoot the eye out of a racing jack rabbit. Soon older and more experienced mountain men were turning to Kit Carson as their natural leader. They found he kept his word steadily as he held a rifle and was willing to tackle what others called impossible. In Kit Carson and the Wild Frontier Ralph Moody tells a swift-paced story of the mountain men who became a national figure in the early days of the West --Book jacket

Mary Emma & company by Ralph Moody( Book )

10 editions published between 1961 and 2014 in English and held by 371 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The protagonist, Mary Emma Moody, widowed mother of six, has taken her family east in 1912 to begin a new life. Her son, Ralph, then thirteen, recalls how the Moodys survive that first bleak winter in a Massachusetts town. Money and prospects are lacking, but not so faith and resourcefulness. "Mother" in Little Britches and Man of the Family, Mary Emma emerges fully as a character in this book, and Ralph, no longer called "Little Britches," comes into his own. The family's run-ins with authority and with broken furnaces in winter are evocative of a full and warm family life. Mary Emma & Company continues the Moody saga that started in Colorado with Little Britches and runs through Man of the Family and The Home Ranch. All these titles have been reprinted as Bison Books, as has The Fields of Home, in which Ralph leaves the Massachusetts town for his grandfather's farm in Maine

Who would have believed that a knobby-kneed ugly little colt called Seabiscuit would become the most celebrated racehorse of all time? Grandson of Man O?
