Oct 10, Laura C. These journal entries from Mormon pioneers could not fail to move the stoniest heart. Since so many of the able-bodied men were in the Mormon Battalion, the women stepped up and did what had to be done. Like Martha Patterson they tied their long skirts over their shoulders, carried their shoes in one hand, and drove their oxen across the river with their other.

The courage, faith, and resilience of these people have carried me through some of my own darkest days. So, so many wonderful stories: come, my Mormon friends, read and claim your heritage! Jun 03, Troy Johnson rated it really liked it. By far the best most comprehensive book I've read to date on the pioneers. This book covers the earlier pioneers, before the 'out and back' wagon trains started up, so it focused on the early wagon trains and handcarts.
The narrative is informative and the author has selected many very good journal entries representative of the pioneers of each year and each type of company. Very informative.

How do you rate a book like this? Some accounts are more interesting than others. And yet another way is continue up 95 to Beatty and in from there.
Rhyolite ghost town is between Beatty and the park. All depends on what part of the park you are going to. If you go the other routes mentioned, you can stop at Dantes View as you enter the park and get a birds eye view of Death Valley. Don't miss that one. How long do you have for Death Valley? I agree with Dez. Dante's view should not be missed. From take the 13 miles side road to the summit. Same road back to Btw, DV reached F yesterday.
Best and most straightforward are not necessarily the same. In this case, another equally straightforward route is far more diverse and scenic, with additional options if time allows some sightseeing detours.

In fact, Hwy 95 and the Amargosa Valley route are more monotonous, with fewer specific sights to see. From St. It takes you to Pahrump NV. From there, go to Bell Vista, a local road that becomes Stateline Road. Stateline Road goes to Death Valley Junction, a tiny ghost town that was a borax mining company town in the s.
From there, Hwy goes into the park. Having already seen Zion , it may be anticlimactic, but it is a fine smaller park.

In the early days of Western settlement and for Natives, this might be their only water source. The whole hike is less than a mile. While it is in the Mojave Desert , it has ponds, lush vegetation, and lots of birds and reptiles.
