Abstract:

Patty Session's 1847 Mormon trail diary has been widely quoted and excerpted, but her complete diaries, including her chronicling of the first decades of Mormon settlement at Salt Lake City, have never before been published. They provide a detailed record of early Mormon community life from Illinois to Utah through the eyes of the community's most famous midwife. They also recount her important role in women's social networks and her contributions to community health and Utah's economy and to pioneer education and horticulture."--Jacket.
