The Santa Fe Trail began its life as primarily a commercial venture. Following a route used at least partially by the Spaniard explorer Francisco Vazquez de Coronado (1541) and later by Zebulon Montgomery Pike (1806), it served as the primary trade route between the growing American West and the Mexican territories. The Santa Fe Trail provided trade in basic dry goods with the northern Mexican settlements, and later provided a connection in the southern trade route to California. The Santa Fe was a primary source of people, goods and mail, only to be supplanted in 1880 by what would become the Atchison, Topeka, & Santa Fe Railroad. This excerpt from 'American Trails Revisited' follows the Santa Fe from Kansas City, Missouri, to Santa Fe, New Mexico, exploring the history of the Native Americans and early explorers through the South Central Plains and into the Southwest.
