In June 1846, Susan Shelby Magoffin, 18-year-old bride of a wealthy trader, set out on what became a 15-month trek down the Santa Fe Trail. Along the way she kept a diary of her impressions of trail life, weather extremes on the Great Plains, and the diverse cultures of the Southwest.

Magoffin's record has been called one of the finest travel journals by a woman in 19th-century America.
