Handcarts to Zion - The Story of a Unique Western Migration 1850-1860, Hafen, Leroy Reuben and Hafen, Ann W.
1 Handcarts to Zion - The Story of a Unique Western Migration 1850-1860

Hafen, Leroy Reuben and Hafen, Ann W.New, University of Nebraska Press, 1992, Spokane, Washington

Paperback



Brand new softcover book! ; It is unparalleled in history, the procession of Latter-Day Saints pushing handcarts from Iowa City and Florence (Omaha) to their promised Zion by the Great Salt Lake. Many of the three thousand hardy souls who trudged across thirteen hundred miles of prairie, desert, and mountain from 1856 to 1860 were European converts to the Mormon faith. Without funds for wagons and oxen, they carried their possessions in two-wheeled carts powered and aided by their own muscle and blood. Some of the weary travelers would finally be welcomed by their brethren in Salt Lake City; others would go to wayside graves or get caught in early winter storms in the Rockies and hope to be rescued by the parties sent out by Brigham Young. The migration is described in Handcarts to Zion, which draws on diaries and reports of the participants, rosters of the ten companies, and a collection of the songs sung on the trail and at "The Gathering." LeRoy R. Hafen and Ann W. Hafen dedicated the book to his mother, Mary Ann Hafen, who wrote about the long journey in Recollections of a Handcart Pioneer of 1860: A Woman’s Life on the Mormon Frontier, also a Bison Book. ; 6" x 9"; 328 pages,

Before the Manifesto -  The Life Writings of Mary Lois Walker Morris, Milewski, Melissa Lambert (editor)
2 Before the Manifesto - The Life Writings of Mary Lois Walker Morris

Milewski, Melissa Lambert (editor)New in New Dust Jacket, Utah State University Press, 2007, Logan, UT

Hardcover



Brand new hardcover book! ; Mary Lois Walker Morris was a Mormon woman who challenged both American ideas about marriage and the U. S. Legal system. Before the Manifesto provides a glimpse into her world as the polygamous wife of a prominent Salt Lake City businessman, during a time of great transition in Utah. This account of her life as a convert, milliner, active community member, mother, and wife begins in England, where her family joined the Mormon church, details her journey across the plains, and describes life in Utah in the 1880s. Her experiences were unusual as, following her first husband's deathbed request, she married his brother as a plural wife in the Old Testament tradition of levirate marriage.

Mary Morris's memoir frames her 1879 to 1887 diary with both reflections on earlier years and passages that parallel entries in the day book, giving readers a better understanding of how she retrospectively saw her life. The thoroughly annotated diary offers the daily experience of a woman who kept a largely self-sufficient household, had a wide social network, ran her own business, wrote poetry, and was intellectually curious. The years of "the Raid" (federal prosecution of polygamists) led Mary and Elias Morris to hide their marriage on "the underground," and her to perjury during Elias's trial for unlawful cohabitation. The book ends with Mary Lois's arrival at the Salt Lake Depot after three years in exile in Mexico with a polygamist colony. ; Life Writings of Frontier Women Series; Vol. 9; 6.25" x 9.25"; 639 pages,
