    This book is important because it is true We need to hear the voices of the women who crossed our land.

  2. John Hansen

    A good historical reference Very detailed account of hardships endured by early settlers coming west.

  3. Mary Kay

    This is an amazing book, but after a while the stories of hardship privation lose their appeal These are the journals of 9 women who traveled to either California or Oregon between 1849 1864 Two of the women were pregnant on the journey west neither one ever once mentioned the fact in her diary They all regard the Indians as interlopers dirty savages, never mind the fact that the pioneers are encroaching on the Indians territory.

  4. Elaine

    Enjoyed this book as it gave a true insight via diaries of the women who traveled west to Oregon and CA and the hardships they endured along the way.

  5. Jenny Clause
