The Meek Cutoff: Tracing the Oregon Trail's Lost Wagon Train of 1845. As the book claims to know something about the possible location of the Blue Bucket Mine, he is not even thinking about the right region. Other, more minor problems include not distinguishing between a prairie schooner and conestoga, having Elliott in 1853 crossing the mountains between the South and Middle Sisters, things like that.

The Lost Blue Bucket Mine is a lost mine reputed to be located along the Meek Wagon Train trail between the present day cities of Vale and The Dalles in Oregon, United States. Its discovery traces back to 1845, several years before the start of the California Gold Rush.

There are some outlandish historical mistakes, For instance, here are two, Davy Crockett died in 1836 in Texas, and the author has him in Oregon in 1846, and the location of the massacre of Jed Smith's men is at the mouth of the Umpqua, not at Scottsburg. Otherwise, the parts about following the trail and the things that they found while doing it are very good, and quite interesting.

There are numerous historical errors in this book, but the primary problem is the fact that he has the trail splitting at Wagontire Mountain instead of further north. As the book claims to know something about the possible location of the Blue Bucket Mine, he is not even thinking about the right region. Other, more minor problems include not distinguishing between a prairie schooner and conestoga, having Elliott in 1853 crossing the mountains between the South and Middle Sisters, things like that.

This is NOT a factual, documentary book. It is very poorly written. It claims to be historically accurate but it is not. There are gross errors the entire length of Hoffman's journey. I would not recommend buying it.
