Print Description:
"The indomitable human spirit is exemplified by the early pioneers of the American frontier, who, in times of great adversity, turned suffering and hardship into opportunities for growth and experience. Many who have gone before us have demonstrated that our inner happiness has little to do with our outer circumstances. The external conditions weathered by these pioneers were often harsh, and winter's severity forced them to take refuge in temporary settlements referred to by trappers and explorers as 'winter quarters.' Here, families crossing the land in ox-drawn wagons containing all they owned, found a respite from the journey and all the hardships entailed along the way.

Yet even with the confines of shelter, tragedy was no stranger. When disease struck, it took a heavy toll, and hundreds would succumb, weakened by inadequate provisions and fatigue. Parents, who had already sacrificed so much, buried their beloved children. Those who were able cared for those who were ill. The fact that these brave pioneers persevered, despite their struggles, suffering and sacrifices is a testimony to their spirit. Rather than becoming hardened, adversity strengthened their resolve and deepened their communal spirit.

Fortunately, this austere existence did not crowd out of life the joy of living. Laughter, merriment, playfulness, the lively strains of the violing, and the dancing party were still observed. Music and song nowhere and at no time better served their purpose of cheering the hearts of men than in these wilderness encampments."
