    Days on the Road: Crossing the Plains in 1865, The Diary of Sarah Raymond Herndon (E–pub/E–book) ê Sarah Raymond Herndon A nice little diary Short but a perspective of crossing from Missouri to the west that is uniue The author Sarah leaves much unsaid and much that was said was done very politely and with an amazingly positive perspective To me it displays the prim and 'stiff upper lip' attitude that her family seems to observe for every situation whether thrilling or catastrophic She doesn't give details of their suffering just stated facts concer

Days on the Road is a rare first hand account written by a plucky pious young girl emigrating across the great wild American plains from Missouri to the foundling West during the last stages of the civil war Much of that stretch was Injun country in 1865 and the threat of being scalped was very real with countless fresh tales and graves along the way to underline the risksStill despite her tender years Herndon has her faith to draw courage from and before the convoy moves out she shows scorn for those too afraid to make the journey with her God can and will take care of us on the plains as anywhere He is leading us through unknown paths We can trust him Heaven is as near one place as another A simple sweet natured narrator her heart aches at the sight of suffering such as captive Confederate soldiers miles from their families and when a gifted guitarist refuses to play for the company she muses If I was gifted with a talent with which I could give pleasure to people I would certainly do so whenever opportunity was afforded I would be glad to promote the happiness and dispel as much sorrow as possible in this sorrowful world Still it s just this sweet uality that prohibits any thrills or grit that may have enlivened the account Herndon must have seen and heard a lot than she is willing to write but her youth and prudery keeps it off the page She is not impressed with some of the Becky Sharp type women she meets along the way and when she finally meets the noble red man the Indian fails to interest her as he had no feather beads nor blankets and was as ugly as sin There are fatalities along the way but not from the expected source Illness ravages the emigrants at various times as they suffer from malnutrition and the dust and heat of the relentless plains The only gun shot wound is self inflicted a Mr Milburn being tragically killed when a shot gun sitting on a wagon discharges when the wheels hit a rutMr Milburn was a Presbyterians which was not Herndon s faith To her the death was just an accident but in a particularly touching diary entry she reveals how she can understand the comfort in believing that nothing ever happens without providence approval and foreknowledge that it will happen in just that way For that moment and one or two others Days on the Road was worth a readBut if like me you are expecting an insightful look into an incredible journey where you can feel the prairie wind and taste the chewing tobacco forget it
