Synopsis of The Gathering Of Zion The Story of the Mormon Trail:

”The author documents the great Mormon trek from Nauvoo to Salt Lake City in 1846-47 and the steady migration that followed it out of the Platte Valley and across the mountains for the next quarter century. Some made it easily, but others made the journey on foot, pushing makeshift handcarts and two companies of these pilgrims in 1856 suffered the greatest disaster that ever befell emigrants on the Western Trails.”
