(From the publisher):
In the mid-1840s, the trails west from the Missouri frontier were clogged with pioneers searching for a new life in a remote land they thought was another Eden.
In The Fields of Eden Richard S. Wheeler shows us a handful of these emigrants who arrived at the gates of Arcadia at a time when the British Hudson's Bay Company controlled the Oregon country and resisted every American effort to push the republic's boundaries to the Pacific.
This is a story of people who fought to overcome their shattered dreams and made possible the settlement of Old Oregon.
