Ox-Team Days on the Oregon Trail
by Ezra Meeker

The Oregon Trail–what suggestion the name carries of the heroic toil of pioneers! Yet a few years’ ago the route of the trail was only vaguely known. Then public interest was awakened by the report that one of the very men who had made the trip to Oregon in the old days was traversing the trail once more, moving with ox team and covered wagon from his home in the state of Washington, and marking the old route as he went. The man with the ox team was Ezra Meeker. He went on to the capital, where Mr. Roosevelt, then President, met him with joy. Then he traversed the long trail once more with team and wagon–back to that Northwest which he had so long made his home. This book gives Mr. Meeker’s story of his experiences on the Oregon Trail when it was new, and again when, advanced in years, he retraced the journey of his youth that Americans might ever know where led the footsteps of the pioneers. The publication of this book in its Pioneer Life Series carries forward one of the cherished purposes of World Book Company–to supply as a background to the study of American history interesting and authentic narratives based on the personal experiences of brave men and women who helped to push the frontier of our country across the continent.

About Meeker:
Ezra Meeker (December 29, 1830–December 3, 1928) was an earlypioneer who traveled the Oregon Trail by ox cart as a young man.Beginning in his 70s, he worked tirelessly to memorialize thetrail, repeatedly retracing the trip of his youth. He was theprincipal founder of Puyallup, Washington. Meeker was born inHuntsville, Ohio, to Jacob and Phoebe Meeker; his family relocatedto Indiana in 1840. Married in 1851, in 1852, with his wife and hisnewborn son Marian, he headed to the Oregon Territory during theera of the donation land claims, ending up near Puget Sound. Theysettled permanently in Puyallup in 1862, where Meeker began growinghops for brewing beer. By 1885 his business had made him wealthy.His wife Eliza Jane convinced him to allow her to build a mansionsimilar to those she had seen in Europe. Three years and $26,000later, her mansion was finished. However, in 1891 an infestation ofhops aphids destroyed his crops and nearly ruined him. Hesubsequently tried a number of ventures, including dehydratingfruits and vegetables, working on packaging milk in papercontainers, and four largely unsuccessful trips to the Klondikelooking for gold. He also wrote a novel about his experiences onthe trip west. Meeker is an important figure in what is now thesouthern portion of King County and the eastern parts of PierceCounty. A statue to Meeker was erected near the Puyallup Library in1926. —Wikipedia, 5 November 2009About Driggs:
