We don’t often think about what happened during the early years of frontier life when a military man was “stationed” to move west and protect the newly constructed westward passages. This fascinating book puts us in the shoes of not one of the soldiers, but the wife he would leave behind at the Fort Phil Kearny massacre.
Frances Carrington was three months pregnant when she headed west with her husband, Lt. George Washington Grummond. Two months after they arrived, she was a widow.
Her story is riveting, full of heartbreak and triumph, told from the unique perspective of an underrepresented voice of her time.
