Editorial Reviews

"One of the enduring myths of the Westward movement is the happy ending: families that survived the arduous journey found a rewarding new life despite hardships. . . . Here is a story of appalling poverty, feelings of inferiority, lack of communication. These are sad, even tragic, tales about women and family life on the frontier."—Publishers Weekly
