"Where Christinas Reigns Supreme"
ANew Novel by the Nebraska
Writer, Mrs. Anna C. Newbigging
"A Cry of the Soul"
A ROMANCE OF 1862.
An open air story of primitive conditions and stout hearts, and,
primarily of a royal battle between love and faith.
The story opens in New York in 1861, though the Civil War
has little to do with it, for it follows the fortunes of a train of Mor
mon convert emigrants crossing the continent to Utah by ox team
and on horseback, and flood, fire, pestilence, wild beasts and In
dians left scant leisure for politics on a cross-country trip those days.
It is a tale to make the blood race, and he who "loves a lover"
or an adventure will find both here, and much to his liking.
Published by Sherman, French & Co., Boston, Mass.; the letter
press is high-class, on good paper, and handsomely bound in cloth.
