Abstract

In the writings of mankind there are far more biographies of men than of women. In the histories of the lives of Utah's pioneers the biographical accounts of the pioneer men far outnumber those of pioneer women. Few of these men have been successful without the help of a woman, be she wife or mother, or both. This thesis concerns itself with one of these unsung help-mates.
The events of a wife's life are so interwoven with the events of her husband's life that to write about one must necessitate writing about the other. This writing attempts to maintain the account from the woman's point of view. This is the story of a valiant pioneer woman, my grandmother. She is my "prideful tradition."
