What red-blooded young man wouldn't want to follow Jed Colby from London, England, shanghaied aboard the brig Wellington, as he traveled the plowing seas, suffered a shipwreck, and journeyed on an exciting trek across half of the continental United States?
A rare combination, this book is all that the title implies. Adventure is the keynote from the he moment Jed is carried unconscious aboard the brig until he reaches California with the Mormon Battalion. Faith comes to Jed gradually as he observes the gospel working in the lives of the members of the Battalion.
This book will provide constructive lessons at the same time that it affords fascinating reading.
