The overland journey from Utah to California : wagon travel from the City of Saints to the City of Angels by Edward Leo Lyman( Book )

7 editions published between 2004 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 301 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mormon missionaries and the colonisers of San Bernardino and other communities also traveled that way, as did a wide array of mail carriers, soldiers, and world travelers. Later, a steady stream of Anglo-American emigrants seeking new homes or fortunes in California shared the road with a surprising number of freight-wagon operators. The trail passed through the territories of numerous Native American peoples, and contacts with them - both friendly and hostile - played a significant role in the experiences of travelers and in the fates of Native American cultures in this region. Lyman's discussions of Mormon-Indian relations and of the infamous Mountain Meadows Massacre offer fresh and important analyses of these vital aspects of the westward movement."--Jacket
No place to call home : the 1807-1857 life writings of Caroline Barnes Crosby, chronicler of outlying Mormon communities by Caroline Barnes Crosby( Book )

9 editions published in 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Crosbys were able to rest in Salt Lake City for less than two years before Brigham Young sent them on a church mission to the Society and Austral Islands in the South Pacific. She recorded, in detail, their overland travel to San Francisco and then by sea to French Polynesia and their service on the islands. In late 1852 the Crosbys returned to California, beginning what is probably the most historically significant part of her writings - her diaries of life, first, in immediately post-Gold Rush San Francisco and, second, in the new Mormon village of San Bernardino in southern California. There is no comparable record by a woman of 1850s life in these growing communities. The Crosbys responded in 1857 to Brigham Young's call for church members to gather in Utah and again abandoned a new home, this the nicest one they had built, one of the finest houses in San Bernardino
