In 1852 a record number of women helped keep the wagons rolling over the perilous western trails. The fourth volume of "Covered Wagon Women" is devoted to families headed for California that year. Diaries and letters of six pioneer women describe the rigors en route, trailside celebrations and tragedies, the scourge of cholera, and encounters with the Indians.
