Geology and the Old West Trails Kit



Here’s a chance to study the major Old West Trails along with the geology that surrounds them. Delve into this fascinating study that includes the old cattle and westward migration trails, but also mining, and the western gold rush. This makes a great supplement to the study of the western states and their history. Designed with middle school through high school in mind, but it is a great family kit, too!

Please note: We do not put a time frame on this study. If you intend it for high school credit, please consult your state requirements.

  • Patrick Nurre’s monograph with illustrations and maps of the most popular historic trails, with historical and geological explanations (3-hole drilled)
