A lively and penetrating analysis of what the overland journey was really like for midwestern farm families in the mid-1800s. Through the subtle use of contemporary diaries, memoirs, and even folk songs, Faragher dispels the common stereotypes of male and female roles and reveals in a new and absorbing fashion the dynamics of pioneer family relationships.
