Summary
"A history of African American migration on the Mormon, California, and Oregon trails, as well as lesser-known routes, to reach the western territories and become permanent settlers or sojourners. Examines how the experiences of Black emigrants on these overland trails, their perceptions of the journey, and their expectations of the West and their new communities differed considerably from those of their white counterparts, even if some aspirations and outcomes remained similar."--Provided by publisher
