Description - Recollections of a Handcart Pioneer of 1860 (Second Edition) by Mary Ann Hafen

An authentic, matter-of-fact record of poverty, incredibly hard work, and loss of loved ones, but also of pleasures great and small In the summer of 1860 the author of these recollections, Mary Ann Stucki, then six years old, walked beside her parents' handcart from Florence (Omaha), Nebraska, to Salt Lake City. The family, converts to Mormonism, had left their comfortable home near Bern, Switzerland, to make the long journey to the Mormon Zion. Nearly eighty years later, Mary Ann Hafen published this account of her life, giving us an unparalleled, candid, inside view of the Mormon woman's world.
