YoungThe Story of a Pioneer by V. DevinnyThis book contains two books, gathered here for their common subject-and value reading-concerning the March of Destiny-the inexorable movement of pioneers to claim the unsettled lands of the great American continent. Trudging alongside prairie schooners these brave, ordinary men, women and children stepped into the unknown to create a better life for themselves and forge a new nation in the process. Many would fall by the wayside, victims to disease, accidents, starvation, banditry, raids by hostile Indian tribes or simply through exhaustion as a result of pitiless journeying through hundreds of miles of difficult terrain beset by every force of nature the wilderness could throw against them. When they arrived at their promised land there began the difficult task of making a living against many of the same obstacles. These are two accounts, recorded for posterity, by those who prevailed to reach and live in Colorado.
