The Old Trails West "is the story of the great legendary routes that bound a wild land into a nation. The Oregon Trail, El Camino Real, the Butterfield Overland Mail, the Santa Fe Trail--these are names that conjure up tales of the past. This book recounts the true stories behind the trails: what impelled their exploration, determined their paths, how they contributed to the settling of the West, and ... the adventures ... of the brave men who made them." You will get to know "the Spanish conquistadores, explore Arizona with Father Kino--'the Padre on Horseback'--search for the Seven Gold Cities of Cíbola, follow the traplines of Jim Bridger and the mountain men, invade Spanish California with General Stephen Watts Kearny and the Army of the West. You will cross hostile Indian country with the Mormon Battalion, surmount snow-filled mountain passes and scorching deserts to dig for gold with the Forty-Niners, carry the mail with the Pony Express, and discover the depth of Indian loyalty with Lewis and Clark."

8 editions published between 1955 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 688 libraries worldwide
As a boy Kit Carson was such a backward little runt that his stepfather was almost ashamed of him. The idea of making a rugged frontiersman out of the shy, bandy-legged boy seemed laughable. But Kit had different ideas, and at sixteen he joined a wagon train and was heading over the Santa Fe Trail for Taos, the little Mexican settlement that had become headquarters fro the mountain men. From then on, Kit was always on the move--trapping beaver, fighting Indian raiders, pushing into new territory of the Western frontier. At twenty he was as tough as leather. He could ride any wild horse on the prairies and could shoot the eye out of a racing jack rabbit. Soon older and more experienced mountain men were turning to Kit Carson as their natural leader. They found he kept his word steadily as he held a rifle and was willing to tackle what others called impossible. In Kit Carson and the Wild Frontier Ralph Moody tells a swift-paced story of the mountain men who became a national figure in the early days of the West --Book jacket

Come on Seabiscuit! by Ralph Moody( file )
14 editions published between 2002 and 2012 in English and held by 319 libraries worldwide
Who would have believed that a knobby-kneed little colt called Seabiscuit would become one of the most celebrated racehorses of all time? Although Seabiscuit was the grandson of the legendary Man O' War, he was neither handsome nor graceful. His head was too big, his legs were too short, and his gallop was awkward. During the depths of the Great Depression, Seabiscuit won against incredible odds and uplifted the hearts of Americans from the streets to the White House. In this book Ralph Moody recounts the tale of the plucky horse who refused to quit, the down-on-his-luck jockey who didn't let horrendous accidents keep him out of the saddle, and the taciturn trainer who brought out the best in both
