courage and perseverance

"A true work of sublime genius"
New York Observer
a pleasure trip, as the wagons headed west in 1846.
But reality intervened...difficult choices, roads not taken, marginal skills, bad luck, liars for consultants, human frailty.
Swirling in the midst of it all, acts of defiant courage...against all odds...for the sake of family and honor. As well, moments of weakness and indecency. After all, these were ordinary people, under extraordinary circumstances.
Join a survivor, as he looks back. With him, you will laugh, cringe, celebrate, and be forever changed by this great, American saga.
