A truly wonderful book, filled with person to person 'true life' accounts of their trials and tribulations. I truly felt as if I rode in their wagon too! I experienced their happiness, sorrow, weariness, excitement and fear. It was some journey. I cannot wait to go on the next one...
This is a must-read for anyone interested in what life was like for the women who made this incredible journey. Faced with innumerable obstacles and hardships, these brave and stong-willed women were fiercely determined to make the best of what life had thrown at them. A truly inspiring story that will make you appreciate even the tiniest luxuries in life today.
A great inside view of those brave pioneers that crossed the US. I loved this book!
