From its beginning in 1846 to the completion of the transcontinental railroad in 1869 and beyond, the Mormon Pioneer National Historic Trail, from Nauvoo, Illinois, to Salt Lake City, Utah, has captivated the fancy of Mormons and non-Mormons. It is one of the most written about trails in all history--hundreds of contemporary journals were kept and much has been written since. Drawing on this rich legacy of historical documents along with modern photographs the authors weave a rich story of life along the Mormon Trail.
