 About the Book 

Mary and her children were on the plains in the snow. Day after day they walked on hoping for some relief. Marys faith was tested, but she knew that the Lord would protect them and that she was not alone. Megan had never heard of handcart treks.MoreMary and her children were on the plains in the snow. Day after day they walked on hoping for some relief. Marys faith was tested, but she knew that the Lord would protect them and that she was not alone. Megan had never heard of handcart treks. When her friend Jenny invited her to come along she had no idea of what she would find out about herself, the Lord, and her family. Walk Beside Me is a story of faith, sacrifice and inspiration. In October 2006, President Gordon B. Hinckley spoke of the Willie and Martin Handcart Companies. With the passing of this anniversary year, it may become largely forgotten. But hopefully it will be told again and again to remind future generations of the suffering and the faith of those who came before. Their faith is our inheritance. Their faith is a reminder to us of the price they paid for the comforts we enjoy. This book is dedicated to Martha Webb Campkin Young who came across the plains with her five children after losing her husband in St. Louis.
