The Journey West The Pioneer Journals of Horace K. Whitney with Insights from Helen Mar Kimball Whit (Hardcover)*
Author: Edited by Richard E. Bennett
Product Description: How did a young newlywed couple experience the Mormon pioneer trek west? Read the first combined husband-andwife 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 The six unpublished journals rank among the great Mormon exodus journals.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 and annotated and includes a glossary of people to provide historical context. This is a remarkable story, with few parallels in the history of the Church. It’s a story of triumph over trials.
