Overview

Today's Jackson Hole...A magnet for tourists who come for a taste of the American West. But before the cars and buses, Jackson Hole was a land of wilderness, a place for American Indians and fur trappers, a gathering spot for horse thieves and miners. Then came the homesteaders-men, women and children who saw the beauty of the land and built their homes within sight of the majestic Grand Tetons. In this book, you will experience their bravery, love, heartbreak, joy and fortitude. You'll live with these remarkable people, battling the land and elements to make a community. You'll feel the struggle of those who lived and died-some of whom came on foot in the Mormon Handcart Migration. And you'll visit the historic settlement known as Mormon Row.
