This included some of Eliza's poetry, her dairies of crossing the plains, and a brief history. My favorite parts were her journal entries that included her personal experiences of receiving the gift of tongues and interpretation. What an amazing, inspiring woman. Unless you are into this stuff, this book could be considered quite tedious.

Very interesting to read, especially with the footnotes that helped me make sense of some of the cryptic journal entries.
