"...on the 28th of April, 1852 my mother loaded all her worldly possessions, consisting of a stock of provisions and a camp outfit, into a canvas covered wagon drawn by four yoke of oxen; and with her little family of five boys, aged respectively three, five, nine, twins of eleven, one of whom was myself, and a girl of thirteen years, she bade goodbye to Michigan, and took up her march of two thousand eight hundred miles..." Following her husband in his quest to quench his "gold fever," Elisha Brooks took her brood across the enormous expanse of the Western United States. Along the way they met hardship, saw great beauty, met with Indians, and finally made a home in California. During his lifetime, Brooks was a popular speaker on the topic of the westward expansion and he finally set the stories down in this book in 1922 for his grandchildren. For the first time, this long out-of-print volume is available as an affordable, well-formatted book for e-readers and smartphones.

A celebration of America’s most historic highway, in words and pictures. Winding through the rugged heartland of the American West, Route 66 has resonated for generations in hardscrabble tales of hopeful seekers of new homes and new lives. It also inspired Alan and Claudia Heller, longtime residents of Duarte, a California town along Route 66, to hitch their trailer to a retirement dream and travel the road again, journeying through their home state and back to Chicago. They collected stories of the iconic highway, and what it means to the people who live along its way, for a series in the San Gabriel Valley Newspaper Group. This collection retraces their journey and introduces us to some of the people and places that make Route 66 truly historic.
