To California By Covered Wagon

From the Frontier collection
To California by Covered Wagon, Written by George R. Stewart, is a great tale of adventure, courage, friendship and overcoming adversity.

"During the spring of 1844, eleven covered wagons headed westward from Council Bluffs, Iowa. Some fifty men, women and children with their dogs and cats and a herd of almost 100 cattle made up the caravan that plodded slowly toward California. The brave little group of pioneers had as their leader Elisha Stevens. Another member of their party was seventeen-year-old Mose Schallenberger, who kept a journal of the trip... Today, whether you go to California by air, rail or highway, you will follow the faint line of their wheel tracks along the Humboldt and across the mountains."
