He spent his life with his sketchbook in his hands.  Highly creative and a gifted artist and writer, Alfred Lambourne shares what he captured upon those pages as his experience of crossing the plains with the saints as a 16-year-old boy.  Lambourne’s sketchbook was filled as he collected his thoughts, expressions and artistic depictions of his travel.  As he writes it, “It is the desires, hopes, trials, pleasures, sorrows of the race! It is the remembered action that interests me in these sketches. The book is filled with the transcripts of once noted places, but my mind, as I look upon them, is filled with thoughts of men and women. It is those who passed among the scenes who are of interest now. I recall the Pioneers themselves. I think of them, filled with hope, yet anxious, eager to begin the new life that lay before them.”

Share in one man’s unique perspective on the trek west, “Action! It is true; one might have become easily wearied of the monotonous trip. The shifting panorama might have become monotonous in its shifting. Monotonous, I mean, were it not for, I repeat the word—the action. The plains, the streams, the rocks, the hills, all became important because these led the way. Ever my thought is of the road.”
