Inside front cover: Pioneers at the River, by Thomas Fogarty, watercolor, 10.5″ x 15.5″, year unknown. Courtesy of Elder Hugh W. Pinnock. Ox teams were a common sight along the pioneer trail.

At river crossings, women and children at times stayed in the wagons while men guided the ox teams and wagons across the rivers.
