The Wyoming Author Adventures Trail takes you from the southeastern to the northwestern parts of the state, and features authors Buffalo Bill, Owen Wister (The Virginian), Mary O’Hara (My Friend Flicka), and Jack Schaefer (Shane).

When you start walking, think about the dirt. According to a Publishers Weekly interview, author Patricia MacLachlan (Sarah, Plain and Tall) is a Wyoming native and keeps prairie dirt around to remind her of her childhood.
