Pratt, Ann Agatha Walker , 1829-1908 : Reminiscenes of Mrs. A. Agatha Pratt, ca. 1907

The original memoir of a Mormon pioneer who arrived in Utah in 1847, one of the wives of Mormon Apostle Parley Pratt. Looking back over nearly eighty years, Ann Agatha Pratt discusses the character of her husband and their life together, the journey across the Great Plains in 1847, and her own experience in helping to build the first road in Parley’s Canyon, Utah. This unique item complements the Newberry’s strengths in Western Americana and Mormon history, particularly the journey from Nauvoo, Illinois, to Salt Lake City.
