What did James Little see in mid-century on the Santa Fe Trail? Among other things:
"Caravans of Prairie Schooners, Forty Wagons, Five-hundred Oxen, Millions of Buffaloes, Thousands of Wild Horses, Antelopes. Big Grey Wolves and Cayotes, Prairie Dog Towns and Jack Rabbits. Rattle Snakes, Lizards and Centepedes, Savage Indians and Mexicans, Strange Sights Crossing the Desert..."
This lively and simple account of Little's time in a world now gone is a treasure of 19th century pioneer biographies.

This first-person narrative told is by Jacob Hamblin and tells of his turning to God after a miraculous healing, conversion to the Church, joining the Saints in Nauvoo, the succession crisis after the death of Joseph Smith, the journey across the plains to the Salt Lake Valley, his missions to the Native Americans, and the settlement of Southern Utah. It is one of the key source documents for many of these important events in Church history, and has become one of the most popular classics in the LDS cannon.
Led by a keen awareness to spiritual promptings and a strong love for Native Americans, Jacob Hamblin served as a mission president, Church arbitrator, and a scout exploring through Utah, Nevada, and Arizona territories. This action-packed account of a frontier hero is an excellent addition to any library.
