Joe's facination with his adopted state lead to his desire to write a story about Nevada's early settlers.

Step back in time, and re-live the life and struggles

of a pioneer couple who settle in Northern Nevada.

        In April of 1862, newly-weds John and Sara Graham leave St. Joe, Missouri as part of a wagon train, headed for California. For five months, they trudged across verdant prairies, snaked through narrow canyons, and made their way over treacherous mountain passes. They sloshed through mud, baked under a scorching sun, and endured all the elements Mother Nature threw at them.

        Held up by an early winter, and weary from the grueling journey, the couple decided to settle along the Humboldt River, in Northern Nevada. Their struggles didn't end there, they'd only just begun.
