[illustration] Inside front cover: Handcart Rescue, by Glen Hopkinson. Eight handcart companies crossed the plains safely between 1856 and 1860. However, the heavy snows of October 1856 stranded two handcart companies on the plains of Wyoming. Hardy Saints from Salt Lake Valley rescued these pioneers but not before more than two hundred had died of exposure.
