Biography

Publisher:  Beverly's, Ltd.; ISBN-10:  0967188504 Type: 

Copyright:  Apr 26 1999
Non-Fiction

These Audio Cassettes are the personal diaries of women crossing America in covered wagons, told of the ingenuity, courage, bravery, loneliness, fear, boredom, excitement and danger they encountered. They were called "overlanders."

Amazon
Beverly's Ltd

Margaret Frink's diary was a great discovery describing her observations of the cholera epidemic, the social encounters with the Indians who followed the wagons, and the cost of provisions along the way.


Excerpt

"Learning by letters published in the newspapers that lumber was worth $400 per thousand in California, while it was worth only $3.00 in Indiana, Mr. Frink concluded to send the material for a small cottage by the way of Cape Horn."



Professional Reviews

"She was a disciplined diarist. Her information sounds dependable, her enthusiasm for the journey unfailing.

Borders Books

Shawn Doyle
