Abstract/Summary:

Patience Loader describes her family's experience on the Mormon Trail with the ill-fated Martin Handcart Company. The company left too late in the season and was caught in the mountains by snowstorms. She shares two heroic acts; one where her mother gives bread to a man who was too exhausted to move and the other when four teenage boys carry the members of the company across an icy river.
