Some brief overview of book

I've read this book three times (so far) because I feel I've come to know Emily and want to continue to know her better. It's a wonderful woman's historical perspective of westward expansion, courting in the 1850's, marriage and children with all its joys and trials...so many things. I've also enjoyed reading about the complicated dynamics between Emily and her family and friends.

I'm so thankful that Emily was so diligent to keep these journals over 30 years. She deserves to be heard. The historical background and reference material by the author is extensive and informative, necessary as you read Emily's entries.

I highly recommend this book for those that enjoy this genre. With the help of the author, Emily has made her place in history.
