‘Between 1840 and 1869 almost three hundred thousand
men, women, and children undertook an epic overland
journey across North America in search of new lives
and new opportunities. This voluntary human emigration

nothing had been said about the tens of thousands of
oxen, horses, and mules who enabled them to accomplish
the journey. Diana Ahmad’s book addresses this oversight
by writing animals back into this important period
of North America’s history.’
