How did a young newlywed couple experience the Mormon pioneer trek west? Read the first combined husband-and-wife account of the pioneer trek in The Journey West. The six unpublished journals rank among the great Mormon exodus journals. They were written by Horace K. Whitney, son of Newel K. and Elizabeth Whitney, with reminiscences and insights from Helen Mar Kimball, daughter of Heber C. and Vilate Kimball. One of Helen's greatest contributions was to share a woman's perspective and complement her husband's perspectives in so many faith-building ways. The book has been richly illustrated an annotated and includes a glossary of people to provide historical context. This is a remarkable story, with fe parallels in the history of the Church. It's a story of triumph over trials.

Highly recommended! Although I have read dozens of accounts of the pioneer trek west, this book offers many new perspectives on the stay at Winter Quarters and the pioneer trek west. Award-winning historian Richard E. Bennett has created the first husband-and-wife account of the journey, as shared by Horace K. Whitney, son of Newel K. and Elizabeth Whitney, along with insights from Helen Mar Kimball, daughter of Heber C. and Vilate Kimball. The book is enriched with masterful maps and rare images.
