A typical day in the life of a 1840's pioneer began early in the morning and involved a great deal of hard work and persistence from each member in the wagon train. Despite the difficult journey (that some did not survive), the pioneers still found comfort from daily routines and social interactions. (McGraw-Hill Open Court, 2002)
