For anyone wanting an authentic account of a Westward journey, this book is it! Catherine wrote about her family's 1844 crossing and the 1847 Whitman Massacre in 1860, leaving for future generations a detailed record of tragedy and triumph that might otherwise have been lost forever. Out of the seven children born to her parents, only Catherine and two of her sisters survived to adulthood. Her two brothers were killed in the massacre and two sisters died in captivity of the measles. I can't recommend this book enough to those looking for a true-to-life account of a plains crossing.

At only 35 pages this book was a quick trip into the past and felt real. A very good but brief peek into this bygone era.
