The Mormon Handcart Migration: "Tounge nor pen can never tell the sorrow"

In her latest book, The Mormon Handcraft Migration, Candy Moulton has made a major contribution to the literature relating to the 1856-1860 saga of Mormon peoples crossing the continent by means of carts pulled by human power.
