Quilts and Women of the Mormon Migrations: Treasures in Transitionby Mary Bywater Cross
Between 1830 and 1877, Mormon men and women migrated to Utah to establish homes and find a place to nurture their faith. During this period many women stitched heirloom quilts as a symbol of their life's accomplishments. This beautifully illustrated volume features these historically significant quilts, as well as paintings, maps, photographs, and genealogies.
