In the wet spring of 1852, a small band of Indiana farm families sets off for California, lured west by the promise of a better life.

Among them is Alice Muller, a reluctant traveler forced to leave home by her husband Henry's dreams of prosperity.

In doing so, Alice changes from a dutiful farm wife into a woman capable of deep commitment, strong actions, and profound self-knowledge.
