Margaret and Ledyard Frink made it from Indiana to Sacramento in their souped-up RV, 1850 style. Now they own their own hotel/restaurant, and are more than breaking even. But it doesn’t take long before things go awry . . . Does their future really lie in the West?

This is the podcast version of my post, Margaret and Ledyard Go West (2)  based on Margaret Frink’s 1850 journal, in Kenneth L. Holmes (ed.), Covered Wagon Women: Diaries and Letters from the Western Trails, 1850, vol. 2 (1983)
