Faith And Betrayal: A Pioneer Woman's Passage in the American West

Regular price $13.30

Based on the diaries of the author's great-great-grandmother, the story of one courageous pioneer woman describes how Jean Rio, a recent widow and mother of seven, lured by the promises of Mormon missionaries, embarked on a long and difficult journey to Utah, where she found disillusionment, zealotry, violence, the loss of her wealth, and the repellent practice of polygamy, until she escaped to California and freedom.
