From the Back Cover
In 1844, two years before the Donner Party, the Stephens-Murphy-Townsend company leaves Missouri to be the first wagons into California through the Sierra Nevada. They enjoy a safe journey--until October, when a fierce mountain snowstorm forces difficult decisions.
The party separates in three directions. Some go overland around Lake Tahoe. Others stay to guard the heaviest wagons. The rest of the party, including eight women and seventeen children, huddle in a makeshift cabin at the headwaters of the Yuba River awaiting rescue. The months ahead will be long and at times terrifying. But with friendship, family, and enough courage to overcome their fear, these intrepid pioneers will discover what truly matters in times of trial.

What I treasure most about ANY book by this author is how she uses words like beads being strung on a necklace!! Her prose is one of the most beautiful things I read. Consider these descriptions, taken from this book...."Loss scraped across my heart like a scouring pad" and "We all had losses too hard to ponder", "Blood-love carries a special strain of strong". Also I love the notes at the back where she explains the research, notes where she may have taken literary license, and expands the history of the real people from her story.
If you ever look for a book for a teen to read to try to cultivate a love of history, give this one a try. It's a "clean" read but it's not simple. There are terrific life lessons to cull from this story and just maybe it will develop a love for story..........which I think would please the author immensely.
Yo Sutyers Fort in 1844...such brave women left behind to fend for there survival...as the men went ahead to get help...the familys left behind in starvation..and struggling fo stay alive.
Before help returns to them.
Amazing what they endured and how they all started over when they finally reach there destination..it seems they all
Became very wealthy in there lives..
Such a good story..I recomend reading it...it really spoke to my heart and soul.
The whole group worked together to support each other.. and became as one big family...the crossing kf the rivers floodings were unbearable...and the largest to cross was the last one before safety...just an awesome story to read.
I will be keeping this book..to remind me
Of ones struggle and one starvation to serve...we all face adversity in our lives
But it takes strength and courage to continue on in life and much faith in the Lord...I cant say enough about this story.
We have traveled and camped this route
And seen most of the places talked about in the story.. the tree lines cut off
As high as the snow was.. the cabins n markers n history is fantastic and
Jane. Did a wonderfull job in writing this book..More stars than 5 ....more like 10..
Good work Jane.
