The Old Book

LONG JOURNEYS  tells the story of the travels of an old handwritten book through the lives of the people who have cared for it since 1778.  Its journey began in the East – Connecticut, New York and Pennsylvania – then followed the Mormon Trail from Kirtland, Ohio, Far West, Missouri and Nauvoo, Illinois to Utah and many years later came under my guardianship in eastern Idaho.   That it survived at all is remarkable.  In addition to the tale of the book itself and the people who cared for it, my personal trek through research and writing is yet another facet of LONG JOURNEYS.

  3. Just returned from helping with the final edit. Myrna’s writing is very good.
    The seven-generation histories of the people who have held the book since 1778 make a fascinating story. It is well documented, with over 200 footnotes. (I know that for a fact.)

    • I’m so glad you came to help with the footnotes, timeline, bibliography, editing etc. I would never have finished without you.
