South Pass I: Handcart Journey
by Roger Blomquist
$12.67 Paperback Book
Seventeen-year-old Sarah's father went on a business trip to New York a normal man, and returned home a Mormon. Sarah's mother was irate, to say the least, and further angered by his announcement that they were moving to the Great Basin. Much to her shock and dismay, she discovered they would be joining the first-ever experimental handcart company, and pulling a cart across the Mormon Trail. Little did Sarah realize, halfway across Nebraska, her father would lose his life and her mother would fall apart. With every step they took, they wondered if they would be able to make it there alive. Could she take on the parental role and lead her mother and three younger siblings to the Salt Lake Valley?
Join Sarah, and her family, as they struggle to make it through the wilderness on their way to Zion. Follow their journey as they fight to keep from joining the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
