Between the years 2006-2010, my husband Doug and I traveled all 2000 miles of the California Trail by car. I thought it important to get a taste of the land that the pioneers traveled over and across so that I could write authentically about the pioneer journey in my novel, Prairie Journey.
This travel diary is an account of our travels. In it I will be showing and telling how the book’s plot and characters slowly came into being as we began to see and be with the land. Join me on our journey across America along the California Trail and learn how the trail was then (in 1850) and how it is now.
