Of All 3 Books Iall 3 books I this one the best It s an authentic diary of a woman on a wagon train in 1865 I appreciated Sarah s appreciation of the beauty of Nature as she traveled as well as her descriptions of personalities along the way What surprised me is how relatively uneventful the four month journey was She was a strong young woman who was independent and calm I The Day Christ Was Born: The True Account of the First 24 Hours of Jesus's Life enjoyed the book Was it awesome No But I m still glad I read it A daily journal written by 24 year old Sarah Raymond Herndon while her family was part of a wagon train headed out west in 1865 The journey took four months from start to finishFor a primary source from 1865 I was surprised at howasy it was to read this Super asy to understand and visualize Sarah has an obvious love of nature and weather and of her horse Dick She was surprisingly positive throughout the ntire journey and it truly seems like she njoyed very day riding and camping on the trail There are only a few account Interesting BiographyThis is an interesting story Considering the time it was written I feel the author did a good job of writing it Very good use of the English language Just a bit boreing I m always fascinated to read of PostgreSQL Server Programming - Second Edition earlier times and Sarah left a very interesting diary chronicling her three month wagon journey from Iowa to Montana in 1865 Her portrayal gave me a different picture of wagon train journeys than I had previously had but I also realize that her travel was toward thend of the Great Migration and conditions had changed considerably from those heading west in the late 18th and Integrity Restored: Helping Catholic Families Win the Battle Against Pornography early 19th centuries Reading this book while vacationing in Glacier National Park and other areas of Montana and Idaho added to myxperience I ve read a lot of westward The Taste of Night (Signs of the Zodiac, expansion literatureThis one just doesn t cut it Dry reading snobby authorNot much new under the sun with this one and there are definitely better diaries out there.

T a perspective of crossing from Missouri to the west that is uniue The author Sarah leaves much unsaid and much that was said was done very politely and with an amazingly positive perspective To me it displays the prim and stiff upper lip attitude that her family seems to observe for very situation whether thrilling or catastrophic She doesn t give details of their suffering just stated facts concerning the journey and all they struggled through So although it was interesting to read and I would recommend it to anyone who has a fervor for diaries and accounts of the western trek but because the author is true to the times she lived in the details of the rigors fo the trip are left to our imagination Days on the Road is a rare first hand account written by a plucky pious young girl migrating across the great wild American plains from Missouri to the foundling West during the last stages of the civil war Much of that stretch was Injun country in 1865 and the threat of being scalped was very real with countless fresh tales and graves along the way to underline the risksStill despite her tender years Herndon has her faith to
