Real good account of the beginings of California becoming part of the USA. Nancy Kelsey was the first caucasion woman to make it to CA. She mostly walked from Missouri to homestead in a better place. By the time she got there she had no shoes, no livestock, one shredded dress, a husband and baby. She had 2 stillborn babies on the way. What a woman!
