Days on the Road: Crossing the Plains in 1865
By Sarah Raymond Herndon. Softcover, 109 pages.
In May 1865, just as the battles of the Civil War had finally come to an end, 24-year-old Sarah Raymond headed west with her mother and two younger brothers. Traveling by wagon train, the Raymonds were determined to start a new life. Sarah's diary, written in spare moments on the journey, provides a unique account of life on the trail. Originally published in 1902, this is an inspiring tale of a remarkable young woman and a tribute to all the emigrants who made their way west.
