Sacrifice, Love, and Courage. These are the things that the Willie and Martin Handcart company travelers had! This book is a REMARKABLE telling of one family joining one group that came across one ocean and embarked on one incredible journey. Your heart will be touched as you read the encounter of the Ole Madsen family. They "answered the call of the early leaders" to gather to Zion. A place far away from their homeland of Denmark. At the time the Saints were crossing the plains with only handcarts as they were easier and faster. But that also meant the saints had to walk the 1,300 miles and leave behind most of their possessions. The Madsen family was assigned to the Willie Company...the company that left late in the season, ran out of food rations, and had to endure harsh winter storms. As author and descendant Mike Ericksen searches for his great-grandmother Marie. He feels a powerful connection to her as he too is enduring life's trials. He gains great strength in knowing that we must all make hard decisions and become to our family the "true heroes" that they can look up to. A BOOK YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO PUT DOWN! SO. SO. SO. GOOD! LOVED IT! The MUSIC CD is BEAUTIFUL!
