The Trail Less Traveled

September 2008
Weekly Reader News - Senior;9/12/2008, Vol. 87 Issue 2, p2
The article focuses on the retracing of the historic route along the trail from Fort Pierre to Deadwood, South Dakota by South Dakota residents in 2008, a century after a group of horse-drawn wagons made its way across the South Dakota prairie. More than 200 people turned out for the 17-day ride on wagons fitted with rubber tires and car seats. Early settlers used the trail to reach Deadwood, a gold-mining town, until 1908, when railroads started operating in the area.
