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!
IN THE SPRING OF 1841 A COURAGEOUS YOUNG WOMAN NAMED NANCY KELSEY SET OUT WITH HER HUSBAND AND INFANT DAUGHTER FROM MISSOURI HOMESTEAD ON A HARROWING TREK THAT WOULD LEAD HER INTO PAGES OF HISTORY. WITH A SMALL BAND OF PIONEERS THEY BLAZED A TRAIL THROUGH THE WILD CONTINENT TO FIND A NEW LIFE IN CALIFORNIA. BASED ON A TRUE STORY.
