Summary

Can you visualize today what it meant to cross America's Great Plains in the mid-19th century? It was a wondrous, perilous, often fatal journey without assurance of a successful life at the other end. Yet tens of thousands made the journey and lucky for us, many set aside modesty, often at the request of children or grandchildren, to put the account of their travels into words.

Young Sarah Raymond Herndon was one of these pioneer women. Her classic story of days on the road are part of American history. She describes the beauty of the country and the wrenching heartbreak of losing loved ones. What she found along the way and at the end will thrill and inspire you.

Every memoir of the American West provides us with another view of the movement that changed the country forever.

Listen to a sample.

Someday Audible will allow us to give more starsn

After listening to this I feel my command of the English language to be wholly inadequate to describe the experience. Suffice to say this is a 'must listen to'.
