This book contextualizes the history of the Mormon migration with other events in American and particularly African American history. Few are aware that several black Mormon converts played important parts in the beginnings of Civil Rights issues from 1930 onward. Any listeners who want to broaden their understanding of African American history in the days from the American Revolution until just before the Civil War will find this book unique and full of information unavailable elsewhere. The trilogy of books (this is the first of three) contain exhaustive documentation, but the authors have been careful to rely not only events but on dialogue (as far as possible) to maintain accuracy. Though they have taken fictional leaps where no historical information was available, they have stayed as close to the facts as possible.

A compelling story
A great story that gets into the lives of pioneers about whom we hear too little. Very effective storytelling, and a compelling story that deserves much more attention and highlighting.
Everyone has heard about Elijah Abel, many have heard about Jane Manning. But through the story we come to know them as human beings and appreciate their lives and struggles.

Inspiring and Interesting
The recording is not perfect- some poor transitions and a repetition or two. But Margaret Young does an excellent job reading the text. Great stories that I had never heard before; it made me love Jane, but also helped me love Brother Joseph even more.
