With an excellent command of primary sources, Bennett assesses the role of women in a pioneer society and the Mormon strategies for survival in a harsh environment as they planned their emigration, coped with internal dissension and Indian agents, and dealt with tribes of the region. This was, says Bennett, "Mormonism in the raw on the way to what it would be later."

A lot of information
I enjoyed this book. I was not written like a story but rather a collection of information.
The author does a good job of entertaining the reader while giving a non biased account of leaders and decisions that had to be made In the wilderness. The narrator has an enjoyable voice and has great intonation changes.

The story that Mr. Bernard tells is well written
Mr. Bennet admits at the beginning of the story that he is an active Mormon and that he will try not to let that enter into the storytelling.
However, I do believe he was not successful. He does not go into the more interesting parts of Mormon history such as polygamy, the Danites and the Kroul side of bridge
