In the spring of 1844, eleven covered wagons set off from Council Bluffs, Iowa, and headed west toward California. On the long and arduous journey, the pioneers had dangerous encounters with Indians and buffalo. They endured inclement weather and difficult terrain, near-starvation and disaster. But, miraculously, they survived. Based on the journal of a seventeen-year-old boy who rode in that caravan to Sacramento, here is a gripping firsthand account of the opening up of the American West.
