    1. If you're a woman, (or want to understand one better) this is the book for you. Satisfying voices reach out to you from every page. My dog-eared version finally gave out on me and I had to order another. This book makes understanding what early pioneer women went through more understandable with their first-hand accounts. It left me hungry for more.

    2. A compilation from early LDS women and their daily events, starting from the East with the locals driving them from their homes to the trek across the prairies into Utah. Also how they dealt with polygamy and the continued trials of being an LDS woman.
