I couldn't put this book down! What a splendid narrative about westward pioneering. You will fall in love with Mollie -- a girl full of gumption! This journal covers her teen years and early marriage, the Civil War, the Gold Rush -- fascinating and true glimpse at an important era in American history -- through the eyes of a great, strong, insightful female role model.
An interesting read. These are the actual journals of a young girl on the plains of Nebraska and the mountains of Colorado in the 1800s. Sometimes difficult to keep track of all the people, but still a great read!!!!!

Describes her years from age 18 to 27. She is a bit self serving, but who among us isnt'? It's very readable, and she clearly enjoyed, or at least had a wonderful attitude toward, the challanges she faced and overcame.
