KIRKUS REVIEW

There are parts of this country where almost any covered wagon story goes. Well, here is a test, for one easterner at any rate found it pretty laborious trekking, as the privations of a group of pioneers, who met horrors with fortitude (or with weakness as the case might be) formed the basis of a story of how a few out of hundreds reached their destination in California, in the middle of the last century. The characters are of secondary interest, though Daniel Johnson, leader of the group, and his family, and the romance of a young married woman for one of the more heroic participants, hold the center of the stage. There is a note of authenticity, there is much of vigor in the telling, but there is little of dramatic or character interest.
