Inspirational Tale, 3 Mar 2003
Frank McLynn has written a fascinating and inspirational tale of the Pioneers; exhaustively researched, and full of fascinating facts, McLynn ensures we understand not only the trials and tribulations they underwent, but also "the reason why". I look forward to more along similar lines from an erudite commentator of this astonishing period of human history.
