Detailed Description

The Journal of Mollie Dorsey Sanford in Nebraska and Colorado Territories 1857-1866

Soft cover. First Bison printing 1976. xi/199 pgs.

"... vivid, high-spirited, and intensely feminine account of city people homesteading in the raw, new land west of the Missouri. ... the story of Mollie herself -- just turned eighteen when the Dorseys left Indianapolis for Nebraska Territory -- of her reaction to the transplanting and such vicissitudes as rattlesnakes, blizzards, Indians, and the hardships of pioneer life."

The journal includes two phases of the author's life -- the emigration with her family from Indianapolis to Nebraska City in 1857, and her journey to Colorado with her husband in 1859 in pursuit of the Pike's Peak gold rush.

Excellent condition. Very clean.
