Summary

The diary of Sarah Raymond chronicles the family’s journey from Missouri to Virginia City, Montana Territory. Sarah notes each day's adventures - the accidents, illness, Indian encounters, mud, dust, boredom, and fear. Her journal was first published in a newspaper in the 1880s, and the book appeared in 1902.

Captivating story capturing adventure and danger

As a reader of stories from the historical archives about the discovery and building of the old "wild west", for instance "Undaunted Courage", I was very interested in this first person account of a very young girl who kept a vivid daily diary of a trip that today would seem unimaginable. These pioneers are the foundation of today's America!! The narration was boringly slow paced, and I did not know if there was a reason for that slow pace. But if you want an unvarnished peek into a settler's life, here it is.
