Legacy of the Tetons: Homesteading in Jackson Hole Candy Vyvey Moulton, La Frontera, $18.95, Softcover; 307-778-4752.

legacyoftetonsIn the story of Mormon Row near Jackson Hole, Wyoming, all of the classic Western settlers’ tribulations played havoc on the May and Moulton families as they moved from England across the American West.

First published in 1994, the story suffers from a little too much family history minutiae, but new to this edition is the dramatic story of the Willie Handcart expedition, which I did thoroughly enjoy. —Cynthia Green
