Originally written in script form and performed to packed audiences at the Museum of Church History and Art in Salt Lake City in 1994. This is the story of the first two pioneer handcart companies of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and their journey from Liverpool, England to Salt Lake City, Utah. The book is based upon actual journal and diary entries of these real pioneers. This historically accurate script was approved by the General Authorities and has now been adapted to novel form by the author of March of the Mormon Battalion, Called to Serve. Second Edition contains The Handcart Log which includes journal entries for both companies from various journals. Index.

What others are saying:
Most history books are boring to the everyday reader, but not this one. A book drenched in journal entries, genealogy, and history with a dash of fictional nostalgia. Only a master storyteller could have pulled off such a feat. A recommended read!
