Author Event: One More River to Cross by Jane Kirkpatrick

In 1844, the Stevens-Murphy company left Missouri hoping to be the first wagons into California. Mostly Irish Catholic, they sought religious freedom and education. All went well—until October when a heavy snowstorm forced the party to separate in four directions. Each group risked losing those they loved as they planned their escapes, waited for rescue . . . or even their own deaths. Kirkpatrick plunges readers deep into a landscape of challenge where eight women, seventeen children, and the men of the journey discover that fear and courage go hand in hand. One More River to Cross is a story of friendship, family, risk, and hope that will remind you of what truly matters in times of trial.
