#east of here #of Here the westward xpansion Of all 3 books I liked 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 Guitar Makers: The Endurance of Artisanal Values in North America enjoyed the book Was it awesome No But I m still glad I read it Days on the Road is a rare first hand account written by a plucky pious young girlmigrating 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 draw courage from and before the convoy moves out she shows scorn for those too afraid to make the journey with her God can and will take care of us on the plains as anywhere He is leading us through unknown paths We can trust him Heaven is as near one place as another A simple sweet natured narrator her heart aches at the sight of suffering such as captive Confederate soldiers miles from their families and when a gifted guitarist refuses to play for the company she muses If I was gifted with a talent with which I could give pleasure to people I would certainly do so whenever opportunity was afforded I would be glad to promote the happiness and dispel as much sorrow as possible in this sorrowful world Still it s just this sweet uality that prohibits any thrills or
