About the Book

While much attention has been given to the ill-fated Martin and Willie handcart companies, few books have examined other handcart companies traveling to the Utah Territory. This volume follows the members of one handcart company by sail, rail, and trail all the way from their New York port to their destination in Salt Lake City. Primary sources from diaries and journals help to tell a compelling shared story, providing readers with a multifaceted perspective of lived religion on the Mormon Trail and strengthening faith through the story of this company’s pushing and pulling to Zion.
