In America, one can't write about the West without discussing two things-the California Gold Rush, and the Mormons. Stegner wrote several books about the Mormons, this is about the most colorful and dashing part of their history, their "trail" or movement from Nauvoo, Illinois to the Salt Lake in Utah.
The central thrust of the book is to lay bare the humanity of the original pioneers, their hopes, fears, and often intense frustrations. It makes for a very sympathetic study of the people and their time.
