Vacationing in South Dakota I happened to find this book to listen to on our way home to California. Hearing this first hand account as we traveled on some of the same route as the pioneers in the 1850's was so exciting. History was never so alive as we enjoyed this experience! Utah and Nevada virtually flew by as we listened intently the whole way. Thanks to all the volunteer readers!!
