Edwin Bryant made the journey from Independence, Missouri to California in the years 1846-47, traversing the plains, the desert, and the southern pass of the Rocky Mountains. As a medical student, he became an unofficial doctor along the way, and describes some pretty gruesome scenes, like the amputation of a little boy's leg. Much of the narrative is concerned with the life of the wagon train, whose daily trials are illuminated in Bryant's careful prose.
