Written by Robert O.

Black-and-white sketches bring additional life to the vibrant prose. Highly recommended for school and community library collections, he text for The Enoch Train Pioneers reads smoothly from first page to last as the story of this memorable bit of American history unfolds. Exhaustive appendices round out this fascinating narrative and historical reference.
Midwest Book Review
This book like his last, March of the Mormon Battalion: Called to Serve is will documented and uniquely written. Consolidated passenger lists, historical journal entries, timely descriptions of their struggles, sacrifice, suffering and the trials of their faith make this book a must for those researching their family heritage. The new artwork is lovely and has captured the emotions and events in their story. I am most grateful for this remarkable team, who labored so selflessly to bring this book into our hands today.

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!
