Associative story to the Classic Kari Woodengown Fairy Tale. A Mormon Pioneer story involving key characters in the Westward Migration, during the Utah Settlement period. Written from oral histories, the characters have been renamed, and the story is NOT one that agrees with some history as published by "official" sources, but it is also not a derrogative story. Bethany and her husband David helped settle the Draper Utah area, and operated a hotel in Salt Lake City. Heartaches, and triumphs, and the making of gowns of wood and silk. This is NOT a classic Kari Woodengown story, but it IS a story of hardship and success, and some of the events revolve around the clothing that this couple made. About 180 pages. This book is not written for children, it does deal with some themes that are difficult for children to comprehend, such as abuse and childbirth, but the language is not graphic.
