Publisher's Summary

The 1852 overland migration was the largest on record, with numbers swelled by Oregon-bound settlers as well as hordes of gold-seekers destined for California. It also was a year in which cholera took a terrible toll in lives. Presented here are firsthand accounts of this fateful year, including the words and thoughts of a young married couple, Mary Ann and Willis Boatman.
The book is published by Washington State University Press.

Long Journey.

I have enjoyed this story, but a bit disappointed by the lack of detail. I found the stories of the families involved to be to be very general and not having details. There was little mention of the interaction with other travellers or the Indian people who's land they were taking. I thought it would be a better story than it was.
