1854 Oregon Trail Diary of Winfield Scott Ebey


The second book in OCTA’s Emigrant Trails Historical Studies Series, the Ebey Diary is proudly re-released as a second edition. When the first edition went out of print, the editors took the opportunity to correct typographical errors and were able to revise maps and footnotes. Twenty-two-year-old Winfield Scott Ebey traveled from Adair County, MO to Whidbey Island, WA Territory. Ebey’s detailed diary offers a delightful and informative portrayal of the journey. Ebey was gregarious and observant; his descriptions of Jeffrey Cutoff and the Naches Pass and his meeting with significant westerners are unequaled.
