The eighth edition of Tell My Story, Too by Jolene S. Allphin has finally arrived! There are 40 new stories and over 100 new pictures in this edition, as well as updates, corrections, source documentation, and a new foreword by Andrew D. Olsen, author of The Price We Paid. The 557-page collection now contains 300 biographical sketches and over 400 pictures of pioneers and rescuers of the Willie, Martin, Hodgett and Hunt Emigrating Companies of 1856. The book also contains an updated index of all names and ages of the pioneers in the four emigrating companies and their known rescuers (with many new rescuer names); three of their emigrating songs, including all verses of the original “Handcart Song” by J.D.T. McAllister; a brief chronological overview of their immigration and rescue; an 1855 map of the trail that they used, and more. The stories in the book may be copied and given to individuals to take on pioneer trek reenactments. They may also be copied for other non-commercial uses.
