Sawyer’s depiction of friendship between women confirms her knowledge of the pioneer sisterhood and the altruistic nature of loving family. Women’s groups will embrace the topics that are generated by this early American journey westward.
Joss Brubacher, a dockworker and New Yorker, squanders away his pay in gambling and drinking establishments. Tarsie Raines, a seamstress and herbalist, is nursing his wife, Mary. She encourages Mary and Joss and their two children to move to Kansas for a fresh start, offering to care for Mary on the trip. But Mary’s condition worsens on the wagon train west.
