Remington writes his publishers, Little, Brown, expressing his pleasure and thanks for their fine job in presenting his illustrated edition of Parkman’s The Oregon Trail. Reading in part: “I am delighted with it [The Oregon Trail]. To my mind it is the best cover I have ever seen. It’s absolute. The drawings 'come' in perfect shape and have been well arranged. I hope the book will be a tremendous success since I want to illustrate more of Mr. Parkman’s works … you have my thanks and gratitude for so well doing a book in which I shall always feel a great pride.”

During the 1880s, most of Remington’s illustrations were commissioned for magazines — The Oregon Trail was one of his earliest successes as a book illustrator.
