With readings taken from contemporary women’s diaries, journals, and reminiscences, this presentation by Doris Dwyer provides a fresh perspective on what life was like along the emigrant trails. These literary excerpts have been specially selected to shed new light on both the ordinary, everyday experiences that the women underwent, as well some extraordinary and exceptional happenings.
This program is produced through a partnership between the Trail Center and Nevada Humanities, and supported by the National Endowment for the Humanities.
