In the early 1800's our pioneering ancestors left the east coast of the United States and headed west. Some traveled by horse, others had wagons, and others hitched a ride. Between 1856 and 1860 nearly 3,000 pioneers used handcarts. No horse, wagon or tagging along just one person dragging a 2-wheeled cart loaded with dreams.
Beginning June, 9, 2009, Lynn "Doc" Cleland reenacts the 1,400 mile historic journey made by his great-grandmother, Sarah Goode Marshall. Some may say Doc was just an old man on a long walk, but it was a walk that forever changed his life. He lived experiences you may not believe, and had conversations you may not be ready for. Only you can open that door, when you’re ready. If you find something in this book that changes your life, you are not alone.
