"In the summer of 1860, the author of these recollections, then six years old, walked beside her parents’ handcart from Florence, Nebraska, to Salt Lake City. The family, converts to Mormonism, had left their comfortable home near Bern, Switzerland, to make the long journey to the Mormon Zion. Nearly eighty years later Mary Ann Hafen published this account of her life, giving an unparalleled, candid, inside view of the Mormon woman’s world. Called to go with the Swiss Company to settle the "Dixieland" region of southern Utah—a hot, dry, inhospitable land—Mary Ann's family lived in thatch, dugout, and adobe houses they built themselves."
