Overview

In a world where encounters with death were a daily occurrence, Howard Egan not only survived - he conquered. This book, written in his own words, preserves the pioneer spirit, the thrilling experiences, the danger, the tragedy, and the struggle of frontier life.

Orphaned at a young age, Howard Egan immigrated to the United States and was later baptized a Mormon in 1842. He was one of the first pioneers to enter the Salt Lake Valley, a messenger in the Mormon Battalion, an explorer during the early days of Utah and California, and the superintendent of overland mail during a time when Indians sought to kill white men at every turn. He was a man who did not fear to take justice into his own hands - a trait that nearly made him a notorious outlaw, but instead made him a legend.

A startling glimpse into the life of a colorful Mormon frontiersman, Pioneering the West is an eyewitness account of some of the most exciting days of the Old West.
