It was the beginning of a two-thousand-mile journey across the wilderness toward Salt Lake Valley — a desert which no one else wanted. By late spring some twenty thousand people were on the way in one of the most remarkable migrations in history.These were not adventurers seeking their fortune in the wilderness. They were earnest members of the so-called Mormon Church, seeking freedom to worship as they pleased and a peaceful locality fo their way of life.Skillfully jim Kjelgaard has recounted the mighty migration of the Mormons. To read their story is to feel new pride in the vision and determination of these early Americans.
