7/13/10: Blazing the Trails Westward
By Doug Fabrizio
Salt Lake City, Utah – Historian Will Bagley says when you study the first-hand accounts of Westward migration, you see what a difficult place the West could be.

Bagley's latest book is the story of the push to Oregon and California. Tuesday, he joins us to explain how we're still living with consequences of choices made some 175 years ago.
