Join William and Melissa Coray, real life newlyweds as they brave the untamed west in this new coloring book and historical reader. A true story, William and Mel-issa are just married on the plains after leaving Illinois. They head west with the Mormon Battalion on the longest military march in U.S. history, covering over 3,000 miles, including Arizona, Mexico, and finally on to San Diego, California. They walked, met indians, wild animals, and great hardships. They traveled the new California frontier from San Diego to Sutter’s mill, where gold was discovered by their fellow soldiers. A well-written and historically accurate account, with wonderful pictures to color, and paper dolls, too!
