My Trip to Washington




The Pulliam Diary is the record of Sarah Pulliam’s trip here with her family by covered wagon. It is a great story- a family’s big dream, a hopeful start, companions and fellow travelers, wagons and teams, the daily search for water and wood, wildflowers, storms, and, for a Midwesterner, the discovery of such wonders as porcupines, mountains and fir trees ten feet across. The diary presents a collection of very human characters, a winding plot, keen descriptions of the Western landscape and then, suddenly, a stunning conclusion.
