BeschreibungDo you wonder what it would have been like to travel the Santa Fe Trail in the mid-nineteenth century? If so, sign on with twenty-seven-year-old Richard Lush Wilson in the spring of 1842 and head out from Independence, Missouri, to Santa Fe, New Mexico, with the Solomon Houch wagon train. Wilson's copious notes describing Indians, trappers, wild life, weather, and other encounters were given to his friend and colleague, Benjamin F. Taylor. He created Short Ravelings from a Long Yarn, which was published as an illustrated pamphlet in 1847. This pamphlet was reprinted as a limited-edition fine-arts book in 1936. In 2008 Pilgrims Process re-issued this rare publication in order to make it available to modern readers. Short Ravelings is a vivid, first-hand account of Wilson's life-changing journey into the wild West. Filled with colorful descriptions and thought-provoking observations, it's a fascinating read. If you are interested in Western history or real adventure travel, this is the book for you.
