Sarah Davis's diary records her 1850 trip across the plains with her husband. Entries describe the scenery and trail conditions. Several pages of notes by her husband at the front of the diary indicate he had traveled to California once before in 1849. The journal is accompanied by three photographs of Sarah Davis.
Caption verso: Mrs. Z. P. Davis. The journal is difficult to read due to the faint pencil lead and the handwriting.
