Riding in the shadow of Saints; a women's story of motorcycling the Mormon Trail.

Richman, Jana.

Crown Publishers, [c]2005

299 p.


Richman retraced on motorcycle the trail seven of her eight ancestors had traveled 150 earlier from Nauvoo, Illinois to Salt Lake City as part of the migration of the Latter Day Saints, or Mormons. Along the way, she sought out graveyards and practicing Mormons, and steeped herself in the rituals of the faith to confront her own long-held prejudices about the Mormon Church.
