Summary
  • Part history, part resource book, part guide, and part photographic essay, The Mormon Trail Yesterday and Today is an essential reference for readers of all ages who are interested in the Mormon trek west. In conjunction with the sesquicentennial of one of the most dramatic migrations in American history, William E. Hill now applies his expertise to the Mormon migration. Driven from their home in Nauvoo, Illinois, Mormons, under the leadership of Brigham Young, began in
  • 1846 their journey west to an expected haven in the Great Salt Lake Valley. The first party arrived there in July 1847. Thousands of members and converts later followed the Mormon Trail, which for much of its way traced the route of the Oregon Trail, although it generally stayed across the Platte River from the more-traveled way. It was thus, until the railroad's arrival in 1869, one of the West's most important and heavily used roads. Although the Mormons' experience
  • Was in most ways similar to that of other emigrants, the religious motivations, tight organization, and family groups of the Mormons gave their migration a distinct character. William Hill introduces the Mormons, their eventful early history, and the characteristics of the migration west. His book also includes a chronology of trail-related events, excerpts from diaries and guidebooks, songs, historical maps, over 200 then and now illustrations, descriptions of major
  • Museums and displays on the trail, and recommendations for further reading
