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."

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."
