The sequel to THE BIG SKY, this celebrated novel charts a frontiersman's return to the untamed West in 1846. Dick Summers, as pilot of a wagon train, guides a group of settlers on the difficult journey from Missouri to Oregon. In sensitive but unsentimental prose, Guthrie illuminates the harsh trials and resounding triumphs of pioneer life. With THE WAY WEST, he pays homage to the grandeur of the western wilderness, its stark and beautiful scenery, and its extraordinary people.Hide synopsis

I deal in western literature both fiction and non fiction which I sell in my western antique business. When people ask me for a recommended wetern book I ALWAYS point them to the Way West. It won a pulitzer prize and after reading it, you'll know why.
I tell people that if they can read the episode about the little boy who gets bit by the rattle snake and not get choked up over the frantic efforts to save him, just bring the book back and I would buy it back.
It's the story of people investing everything they have in moving west and risking everything in doing it. Their trials and tribulations and small joyful victories comprise the story. Their real life experiences are portrayed by fictional characters that you get to know and care for.
Don't miss the chance to read it.
