Fans of Non-Fiction Book Club

Fans of Non-Fiction Book Club is our newest group, hosted by LPB Member Holly D. The group will meet approximately every other month to discuss true stories - which are often stranger than fiction. Stand-alone meetings, each time we will discuss a new book. 

Jan/Feb title: The Oregon Trail, by Rinker Buck

  • #1 New York Times Bestseller
  • #1 Indie Next Pick
  • Winner of the PEN New England Award

A major bestseller that has been hailed as a “quintessential American story” (Christian Science Monitor), Rinker Buck’s The Oregon Trail is an epic account of traveling the 2,000-mile length of the Oregon Trail the old-fashioned way—in a covered wagon with a team of mules—that has captivated readers, critics, and booksellers from coast to coast. Simultaneously a majestic journey across the West, a significant work of history, and a moving personal saga, Buck’s chronicle is a “laugh-out-loud masterpiece” (Willamette Week) that “so ensnares the emotions it becomes a tear-jerker at its close” (Star Tribune, Minneapolis) and “will leave you daydreaming and hungry to see this land” (The Boston Globe).
