1854 Oregon Trail Diary of Winfield Scott Ebey, edited by Susan Badger Doyle and Fred W. Dykes


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.
