This book reflects a trip to Salt Lake City and CA during the 1850's. This is a series of letters that reads like a novel and it is a first person account of the hardships of travel across the plains and mountains of the territories and what the family encounters in Utah. It reflects the biases of the times, often in ways that are not tolerated today, as well as great distress with the many cited injustices towards those she encounters, especially the multi-plural wife system just beginning its movement in Utah. I found it hard to put the book down. It is an easy read.
