Although the story of the Willie and Martin handcart pioneers feels familiar to many of us, most of us know only selected anecdotes from this dramatic saga. In this new book, Andrew Olsen provides the most comprehensive and accessible account of this epic journeyall the way from Liverpool to the Salt Lake Valley. Along with a broad perspective of the trek, readers also get compelling personal stories from members of the company, many told in the first person. These memorable accounts include many inspiring miracles, plus clues to how the brave survivors were capable of successfully enduring so much travail. This story will motivate those who are seeking to be inspired and lifted, those who are struggling with personal difficulties, and those who are striving for greater consecration.
