NOT A TEACHER
From all over the country, people from all walks of life are selling everything they own, loading their remaining possessions into small covered wagons, leaving friends and relatives behind.
They are heading out across the plain to Oregon, California and other points west following trails blazed by those who have gone before.
It’s not an easy journey! It’s long and hard, fraught with challenge and danger, disease, deserts, .... (I don't know what he's saying here), steep hills, treacherous rivers. Many do not succeed. For those who do, the rewards are great. Adventure on the trail! And opportunity at its end. New life in a new land.
