Recollections of Past Days
By

Rating
Patience Loader has become an icon for the disastrous winter entrapment of the Martin and Willie handcart companies, who traveled the Mormon Trail in the 1850s. Her autobiography offers an important record of those events, but also of much more. Wife of a Civil War soldier, Patience served as an army laundress in Washington DC and ran a boarding house as well. After the war, her husband died of consumption, and Patience returned to Utah alone, where she became a cook in a mining camp.

About the Author

Sandra Petree teaches literature as a member of the English faculty at Northwestern Oklahoma State University and was originally drawn to this autobiography as a literary text. While her historical annotation is thorough, she also considers the memoir as the self-inscription of an ordinary woman who did extraordinary things and then, as best she could, gave them a vivid expressive form. Petree = s edition of Loader fits well the literary as well as historical aims of series editor Maureen Ursenbach Beecher.
