Annotation: In the spring of 1864, 20-year-old Arabella Clemens, along with her two sisters and their husbands, left by covered wagon from Council Bluffs, Iowa, and headed for Oregon. Greenberg and McKeever have edited the intriguing memoir (composed as a gift to her children and grandchildren when she was in her eighties), adding introductory material, commentaries, and black-and-white illustrations that allow readers a glimpse of one woman's account of pioneer life. The editors acknowledge that Arabella's perspectives on slavery and Native Americans are outdated by today's standards, and their comments help to add balance to the presentation while accurately reflecting Arabella's views. An excellent addition to classroom units on the westward movement or women's studies, this will also be of interest to history buffs.
