When Pioneer Wagons Rumbled West
When pioneer wagons rumbled west, when their wagons came to swift, muddy rivers, and when their wagons climbed steep mountains -- what did the pioneers do?
They worked and they prayed every step of the way, says author Christine Graham as she recounts in vivid words and pictures the challenges faced by the Mormon pioneers. Her rhythmic verse combines with the exuberant, historically accurate watercolor illustrations of Sherry Meidell to bring to vigorous life the trek west and the routine of life on the trail. The book reminds us not only of the backbreaking work done by the pioneers, but of the strength of their faith.
When Pioneer Wagons Rumbled West tenderly and reverently portrays their epic journey It is a book you will enjoy reading and rereading with your child, a book as winning in appearance as it is poignant in mood.
